Organizational Employment for People with Disabilities

BCI’s mission is to enrich the lives of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families by providing a choice of fulfilling work along a continuum of opportunities. For some, being employed under our Organizational Employment Program offers a fun and safe environment with an opportunity to thrive.

 

The Organizational Employment Program is designed to offer full support for people with varying levels of abilities. Our dedicated team of Employment Support Specialists works to accommodate each individual’s unique needs. Through regular training and assessment, we ensure the highest level of success for every person we serve. We focus on abilities rather than disabilities, and we transform a desire to work into something meaningful and fulfilling.

 

Organizational employees work directly for BCI at one of our BCI Packaging facilities, where we provide first-rate contract packaging and light manufacturing services to customers across the country.

 

Benefits include:

 

  • Full- or part-time employment

  • Paid vacation, holidays and sick time

  • Voluntary life, dental and vision insurance

WORKING AT BCI PACKAGING

Our Organizational Employment Program is accredited by CARF International, which assures our commitment to program and service quality with a focus on the satisfaction of those we serve.

The St. Peters facility is equipped with state-of-the-art features to help keep our employees safe while on the grounds. The building also features a large, St. Louis Cardinals-themed breakroom that provides a fun atmosphere for enjoying meals, group meetings and breaks.

 

The second facility in Moscow Mills has 23,000 sq. ft. of production floor and warehouse space and operates 10 lines. Employees at Moscow Mills can enjoy a nice breakroom during their down time.
