Imagine the ideal employee. Someone who comes into work excited about the tasks that lay ahead of them, who will rarely miss a day of work and who knows exactly what their part of the job is. Those are the special employees, the ones that make an employer's job just a little easier. We belive that Northeast Missouri Sheltered Workshop
offers employers a win-win situation.
In 1965, with the passage of Senate Bill 52, the Sheltered Workshop Program of Missouri came into begin supervised by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Northeast Missouri Sheltered Workshop, Inc. was founded in March of 1966. Members of the Hannibal Junior Chamber of Commerce also sponsored the workshop as a project.
The group began operations in a single room in the Admiral Coontz Armory but soon outgrew these facilities. In 1967, the city of Hannibal donated the former Dura-Steel building located on Lindell Avenue. The workshop moved to its current location at 659 Clinic Road in 1972. Over the years, it is estimated that over 10,000 people have been served by the NEMO Sheltered Workshop.
