The Maher Center offers a variety of services to businesses looking for quality work at a reasonable cost. The individuals with developmental disabilities that comprise our work force are proud of the work they do. They're motivated by the opportunity to be employed, to be engaged as fully as possible in life experiences and to live their lives with dignity and respect.

Some 100 Maher Center participants with developmental disabilities typically are employed among the various contract services.  All employees are closely supervised, receive ongoing job training and are mentored by an individual job coach.

Contract Services

We offer a variety of services, primarily to state and federal government entities, on a large-scale, contract basis. These services are also available to and applicable to the operations of many businesses and educational institutions. 

These services include:

Commercial laundry services, both customer owned goods and rental goods:
