About the Frank Stern Employment Training Center:
The 7,500 square foot Frank Stern Employment Training Center is being constructed in response to the demands of a sizable waiting list for The Haven’s Adult Day Training programs for adults with disabilities. These programs have been designed to develop confidence and a sense of independence for each participant through practical experience in a variety of different vocations. Haven Industries is a unique opportunity in the Sarasota-Manatee community. Individuals enrolled in the program have the opportunity to earn paychecks for their work. The Haven Industries’ facility is part of The Haven’s master plan for developing its 32-acre property in to a fully functional campus devoted to realizing the highest potential possible in each of the individuals the campus serves.
