Our goal in HIT's Sunset Vocational Program is to give our clients 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 for our clients.
West River Produce
-- West River Produce is our licensed commercial kitchen, renowned for its fruit pizzas, fresh fruit trays and fresh veggie trays.
West River Lawn Service
-- We have contracts to do mowing and other yard work for 25 residential and commercial properties in Bismarck and Mandan. This crew of 4 (plus a direct support professional supervisor) is busy from April through October. During the off months, they keep busy in our production department.
-- Our production crew does laundry for a commercial cleaning business in Bismarck, paints fire hydrants in Mandan and other assorted production tasks and contracts.
-- Many of the clients in this program have been able to get jobs outside of HIT, but need the safety and security of a day program when they are not working, so this program has several rec/leisure groups designed to fill this need.
