Building a Better Future with Integrated Employment
HIRING PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES
Adding Maine Woodworks furniture to a space always sparks change. A pop of color pulls your eye, the farmhouse and cottage styles conjure a memory, the quality and comfort pull you in. Each piece is also handcrafted to bring about an even bigger change—transforming the way the world views disabilities in the workplace.
Maine Woodworks is a Maine nonprofit on a mission: hiring employees with disabilities. We make more than high quality, handcrafted furniture. We make space for disability in the workplace.
Hiring people with disabilities takes investments in infrastructure, support, and training. Mastering shop skills. Learning people first language. Offering equitable, wages and good benefits well above industry standard. We see, every day, how that investment pays off in pride in work well done, a renewed sense of purpose, and true partnership between employees with and without disabilities.
Every purchase of our handcrafted furniture celebrates and supports the incredible potential of integrated employment and the dedication and skills of our hardworking team of Maine wood furniture makers. When you buy from Maine Woodworks, you bring that message home.
