Project Shield

Community Inclusion Services Since 1983

Project Shield is committed to helping developmentally disabled adults in San Juan County live more meaningful lives. The goal is to provide individuals with the greatest opportunity to learn, grow, and explore their communities.

Customized Community Supports

The service focuses on maximizing independence, creating interpersonal relationships, establishing natural supports, and participating in the local community. These supports are based on individual choice of outcomes and then designed to measure progress specified in their Individual Support Plan.

Community Integrated Employment

Project Shield assists individuals with disabilities to increase economic independence, self-reliance, and growth within a career. Based on the individuals' career plan, they will work with a job coach during the job search process, the application and interview process, and job improvement and growth. We provide job coaches, transportation, assistive technology, and specialized job training.
