Since 1959, the Vocational Services Division has existed to give individuals with disabilities the opportunity to achieve their full social, vocational, and economic potential. Through specialized training and supervision, individuals learn key work-related skills, allowing them to earn a real wage for a real job. Our employees gain a sense of pride and accomplishment in their achievements and our customers benefit from a trained and eager work force capable of producing consistently high quality work. We currently provide services to over 500 individuals with disabilities.

The Vocational Services Division provides training and employment opportunities at two vocational centers in Scranton, at the Burnley Workshop in Stroudsburg, and at various satellite locations and partner businesses in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Our facilities boast 80,000 square feet of production and warehouse space. We have provided custodial services since 1986 and are currently contracted to perform custodial services for approximately 1 million square feet of space. This includes custodial services at Tobyhanna Army Depot, Tobyhanna, the Federal Building & Courthouse, Scranton, the Social Security Administration Building, Wilkes-Barre, and the Naval Reserve Center, Avoca. In addition, we provide landscaping services for over 100 acres of land.

Our satisfied customers and partners include: Dempsey Uniform & Linen Supply, Department for Motor Vehicles, Gentex Corporation, HarperCollins Publishers, Sanofi Pasteur, and Tobyhanna Army Depot.

Emphasis on Quality

“Allied Services provides HarperCollins Publishers with professional, quality work. We always have our jobs done correctly, completely, on time, and with an emphasis on quality.”

HarperCollins Publishers, Scranton, PA

“Dempsey’s partnership with Allied is truly a win-win. We gain valuable production in an area that is difficult for us to staff and Allied gains constructive vocations for their clients. Allied’s clients sort, clean and stack our hangers for reuse. The hangers are returned on a timely basis and the quality of the work is excellent. It costs about the same to outsource the work to Allied, but we get the additional benefit of employing the disabled in our community. It makes smart business sense and our employees are proud of our company.”

Kristin Dempsey, Vice President, Dempsey Uniform & Linen Supply, Inc.

“Allied Services employees assemble, pack and ship medical surgical kits that are sold to drug stores during the influenza season. Allied performs these services in a way that is absolutely seamless to our customers. They provide excellent quality service and allow us to extend our business services to our customers at our busiest time of the year. Having access to this resource while at the same time supporting Allied Services’ efforts to serve the community is very rewarding to our organization.”
