Success Story: ViaWorks at Cigars International

Cigars International has hosted ViaWorks in their 80,000-square foot warehouse in South Bethlehem since September 2015.  The ViaWorks team of more than 50 works side-by-side with Cigars International Employees to produce high quality work, and has become an integral part of the company’s business and workplace culture.

“Via has been an asset to the sampling department at Cigars International. Via’s workers improved and exceeded our product’s quality and  overall production. Each day, the Via team arrives ready to work, with a positive attitude; it’s clear that each worker is happy to be here. That attitude promotes positivity within the warehouse. Working side by side with the Via team improves the entire department’s morale and work environment. I cannot stress how important Via is to our department and to the warehouse as a whole.”

How to get involved

COVID-19

COVID-19 UPDATE:

To comply with Governor Wolf’s mandate that non-essential businesses be closed and with guidance from the PA Office of Developmental Programs (ODP), that funds many of our programs, Small Group Employment, many Community Employment Services, Creative Expressions Adult Training Facility and Prevocational Workshop are closed for participants until the mandate is lifted. 

However, ODP has determined that home and community-based services are considered life-sustaining and are exempt from the Governor’s directive asking for the closure of all non-essential businesses.  Therefore, Via will provide limited Community Participation supports, In-Home services and Behavioral Support services.  As we learn more from ODP, coordinators will reach out to participants about services that are available.  We are reaching out to Via staff now to determine who can provide these services. 

Coordinators are working remotely and are available by email or phone to answer your questions.  Please contact your coordinator by email or phone if you need anything or email Via@ViaNet.org.
