We believe diversity promotes a healthy thriving community. That’s why we began Custom Fit Inclusion & Employment Services (CFIT), to assist individuals with their goals and needs for community access, life skills enhancement, recreation, health, volunteering and employment.
We support adults with diverse abilities to secure employment and build the life they desire. Our person-centered service enhances community participation in recreational and volunteer activities as well as paid employment.
We facilitate opportunities for individuals to obtain real work for real pay. The Custom Fit team uses a process of discovery to identify a job seeker’s skills, abilities, and preferences then partners with local businesses to determine how to best meet their staffing and business needs. After a job seeker is hired, we provide ongoing follow-up, supporting each worker with job and life skills training, according to a person’s needs.
CFIT also operates two social enterprises which employ individuals with diverse abilities: Earth Matters Recycling and Kootenay Direct Paper Distribution Services .
We believe an inclusive community benefits everyone. Our services support individuals to engage in all aspects of life. Everyone has the right to belong –whether it’s going to school, shopping, attending community events, going swimming or hiking. At CFIT, we empower people to reach their fullest potential.
