ABOUT US

History

Our organization has been providing jobs for people with disabilities in Harrison County, West Virginia, since 1969, originally known as the Harrison County Sheltered Workshop (The Workshop). 

In 2013, our name was changed to better reflect the mission and values of our organization to Empowerment Through Employment, Inc. or ETE. 

Today, we are known as WorkAble Industries, Inc.

Although our name has changed over the years, our mission has remained the same: to empower people with disabilities through meaningful employment.

WorkAble provides employment services for people with disabilities, ranging from on-the-job support employment and off-site job search assistance to on-site employment and career building services. 

Our career programs offered on-site allow our employees to be involved in the manufacturing of some of our wood products and also among other areas such as with our document shredding, janitorial and clerical services, and quality assurance. To help our workers with disabilities find success, we also help with placement with other employers in accordance with each individual’s interests and skills.

Our unique organizational model has withstood the test of time, making this a unique business that offers quality and affordable products and services that you won’t find anywhere else, while employing and supporting people with disabilities.
