Our goal in HIT's Sunset Vocational Program is to provide opportunities to work and earn a paycheck.
HIT has contracts with several entities throughout Bismarck/Mandan and also runs several of its own small businesses that provide work opportunities
West River Produce
-- West River Produce is a licensed commercial kitchen, renowned for its fruit pizzas, fresh fruit trays, and fresh veggie trays.
West River Lawn Service
-- West River Lawn Service has contracts to do mowing and other yard work for 25 residential and commercial properties in Bismarck and Mandan from April through October. Outside of this timeframe, they assist with Production.
-- Production does laundry for a commercial cleaning business in Bismarck, paints fire hydrants in Mandan and other assorted production tasks and contracts.
-- Vocational is for people who have competitive employment with local businesses. HIT provides several Rec/Leisure groups designed to provide the safety and security of a day program when they are not working.
