Our work is done at our Eveleth center and in community settings.
ERDAC employees/crews, along with job coaches, are hired to work in area communities in jobs such as cleaning for businesses and mowing lawns.
We have a dedicated workforce ready to help the local businesses to fill contracts for jobs such as assembly, packaging, or collecting, and we have work crews available to go to local businesses.
We recycle old clothing and fabrics to make rags. Customers include local businesses and mines. We also create hand-loomed rag rugs, purses, dog toys and more from the donated materials.
