The industrial division of Hillcroft Services, Cannon Industries, employs over 350 adults with disabilities to provide subcontract work for businesses in Indiana. Cannon Industries provides work opportunities for individuals with disabilities in Delaware, Henry, and Johnson counties.
Participants who are employed with Cannon Industries may work part-time or full-time. Individual work assignments are based on the needs of the participant. Cannon Industries participants are supported by Direct Support Professionals.
Hillcroft’s Work Services Direct Support Professionals (DSP) receive initial and continuing training in First Aid/CPR, Aggression Management, Medication Administration, Universal Precautions, Positive Behavior Supports, Preventing Abuse and Neglect. Each DSP is also required to receive specific training on any individual with whom they work including, but not limited to individual behavioral and medical needs. These trainings are also updated per need/change in client status.
Cannon Industries services are funded through one of the Medicaid waivers, group homes, and state line dollars. Clients may also private pay.Hillcroft does not maintain a waiting list for these services. Cannon Industries can begin providing services as soon as funding is secured unless there are significant individual health and safety concerns that must be addressed prior to services. Should there be health and safety concerns to address, Cannon Industries staff will work with the individual and their interdisciplinary team to insure that the appropriate trainings, plans and safe guards are in place in a timely manner so that services can begin.
In order to obtain Medicaid Waiver funding, an individual must contact the Bureau of Developmental Disability Services at 765-288-6516 to determine their eligibility. There currently is a waiting list for new Medicaid Waiver funding services through the Bureau of Developmental Disability Services.
We encourage you to watch this short video from ACCSES on commensurate wages and how it's used with prevocational services for people with disabilities. This video is used to illustrate the positive impact work centers have on those with disabilities and how they create opportunities for success in training and skill building.
