Health Development Center

Community Health Developmental Center is an Adult Sheltered Workshop serving developmentally disabled adults. Individuals are provided with weekday vocational and developmental education and training, and  a limited number of individuals are served through the residential program.


  • Vocational Training consists of completing subcontracted work for local companies by the program participants.

    Some examples of contracted services include:
    • We have a contract with the County Court Clerk offices in Jacksboro and Jellico in which we put together nut and bolts for license plates.
    • Program participants receive earnings based on a sub minimum wage or piece rate for all work performed. The revenue generated from these contracts not only pays the wages the program participants but also supports the other services provided. sstooksbury@chetn.org
    • Packaging Medical Supplies
    • Balloon Packaging
    • Stuffing Envelopes

  • Developmental Education training emphasizes academic skills, fine and gross motor skills, social skills, self-help skills, independent living skills, safety and health issues and communication skills.
