DDS Services

Transitional Employment Unlimited (TEU) offers DDS consumers the opportunity to learn, participate, and grow each day in a variety of domains. Our focus is on employment and developing the skills necessary to become successfully employed.

We have several small-group work sites at work throughout the greater Torrington area. In addition, we support some individuals in their competitive employment settings, while others participate in honing their work skills by volunteering in the community on a scheduled basis. Still other TEU members are learning about work through our Center activities. We continually encourage each person we support to work to the full extent of their capabilities.

At the TEU Center we offer daily classes on a variety of topics ranging from current events to essential work skills to managing personal relationships and social skills. Guest speakers from the community and trips to interesting places provide even more opportunity for learning.

The Center is open to all DDS clients who are looking for a safe place to be during the day where they can learn and socialize with their peers.
