FAYCO Enterprises Programs and Services

FAYCO Enterprises, Vandalia, Illinois, receives referrals from such agencies as the state Department of Rehabilitation Services, public schools, mental health agencies, and Pre- Admission Screening Agencies (PAS Agencies).

Referrals are also accepted from any other agency or individual. As may be imagined from the broad mission of FAYCO Enterprises, the total program involves a number of interrelated services.

FAYCO has a multitude of "in-house" services that facilitate the needs of the individual as well as many other specialized programs.




Evaluation may range from three days to four weeks, depending on the needs of the individual. Any individual meeting the general admission requirements and who is at least 16 years of age is eligible after necessary medical and psychological information is obtained. During this time the client is provided with the opportunity to express his or her vocational aspirations and abilities. The client learns to identify and work around those characteristics which serve as a barrier to his or her employability and to focus and build on individual strengths and talents so that meaningful steps may be taken to realize his or her own optimal vocational potential making informed decisions based upon information and self-understanding.

Work Partners or Community Employment Services

The thrust behind these programs is to help local employers with understanding the many benefits they will enjoy when they facilitate the assimilation of disabled workers into the competitive work force. Placement is a cooperative effort between the industrial and rehabilitational communities to find competitive employment opportunities for a qualified disabled worker and help ensure their success on the job. Please ask us how our Employment Services can help you. Work Partner appointments may be held at 1313 Sunset Dr. in Vandalia Illinois, 2112 Schram Ave. in Hillsboro Illinois, or 333 Potomac Blvd. Suite F in Mt. Vernon Illinois.

How We Pay the People We Work With in Our Agency

Skill development centers, such as our workshops in Vandalia and Hillsboro, offer jobs at wages that are based on the skill-set of the person doing the job. The worker protection legislation known as Section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act ensures access to these types of jobs for those individuals that qualify.

There is a video on YouTube (embedded below) that does an excellent job of explaining how we pay the people we work with in our agency: "Putting Success Within Reach - Commensurate Wage Illustration 2012" - Explaining the fair pay practices of community rehabilitation programs. This video is very well produced and we encourage everyone - individuals, family, the businesses we work with, and the general public - to view it.
