Howard Training Center operates four CARF accredited vocational programs and various employment support services. Individuals desiring to work may choose facility or community based employment programs.
- HTC Traveling Café & Catering Company and Production Unlimited are facility based, work activity programs. These programs provide greater supervision and support for participants. Activities in both programs focus on work habits, social skills and productivity appropriate for work environments.
- Community Employment and Culinary Services provide supported employment at various businesses and locations in the community for enclaves (small crews of 3-6) with a crew supervisor.
Community Employment also assists individuals in finding and obtaining competitive employment through the Individual Placement program. Community Employment provides initial training for the individual and then fades support. Individuals employed competitively receive 1 to 4 hours of support monthly after being stabilized in their job.
