Supportive Work Opportunities Program (S.W.O.P)

Supportive Work Opportunities Program is based in Maplewood and provides a supervised “real-world” paid employment experience. Working alongside staff, consumers provide full-service janitorial, landscaping and light maintenance services to businesses and homes in Essex County.  

When not in the community working, consumers participate in activities and workshops that enhance vocational, communication and social skills in order to improve participation in the workforce. SWOP offers education in peer advocacy, behavioral management and life skills.
