MISSION OF THE SERTOMA S.H.O.P.
The mission of the SERTOMA
S.H.O.P. is to provide vocational education, counseling, training and
opportunity to adults with mental retardation and other developmental
disabilities in the greater Tulsa community. Vocational services are provided
to persons who’s disabilities range from severe to mild and moderate. An
attempt is made to provide services to everyone who could benefit from them.
Goals are established for each worker to help them maximize their potential for
increased responsibilities, and to promote independence in their lives by
providing instruction in living and communicative skills; many are also given
housekeeping training. We hope to increase the quality of each person’s
habilitation and through this, to enhance their quality of life. The Sertoma
Shop provides Sheltered employment, Supported Employment and Life Skills
training to eligible individuals with developmental disabilities. The Sertoma
Shop also operates a cedar shim – cedar mulch manufacturing facility. Sertoma
Shop facilities are located in East Tulsa, West Tulsa and Owasso.
