Job Development starts here!



Southside Unlimited was established in 1986 as an art program for adults with developmental disabilities. In 2006 Southside Unlimited, developed a supportive employment relationship in the recycling industry. We sorted paper and other materials and turned the sorted material in for redemption. This evolved into Southside Recycling, which currently provides employment to 25 participants.

In 2016, Southside separated artistic development from job training and started Employment Services to better meet the needs of participants looking for paid and volunteer job opportunities and skill development. In 2017 Employment Services was expanded to include a Paid Internship Program and Competitive Integrated Employment Incentives. In 2018 Tailored Day Services were added to provide customized employment support.

Employment Services provides job preparedness, job development, and job coaching services using person centered thinking and customized employment strategies to ensure that both job seekers and employers are receiving services uniquely tailored to their needs.
