Fox River Industries is a part of Green Lake County Department of Health and Human Services. Located in Berlin, Wisconsin, we provide work and vocational training primarily to developmentally disabled persons residing in Green Lake County. At Fox River Industries, we provide outstanding consumer services on a daily basis in our Production, Adult Day Services, Supported Employment, and Transportation Services units. While the primary target population is adults with developmental disabilities, Fox River Industries also serves individuals with chronic mental illness, W-2 participants, and juveniles. Fox River Industries has a staff of 15 members that serve four program areas.
Fox River Industries provides services to individuals with disabilities, offering them the opportunity to learn and grow to their fullest potential, to achieve their dreams, and to live and work in their home community as independently as possible.
Ed is available to answer any questions about the program or will be able to direct you to the correct staff that can answer your questions. Penny, with 30+ years of experience is also a great reference for getting your needs met.

Day Service Team
The Day Service Program and its staff are responsible for providing skill based training to those we serve in the community and at our Fox River Industries location. This program provides a variety of services including community outings, assisting with volunteering in the community, educational opportunities, exercise and physical therapy, along with taking care of personal care needs and daily skills training. In this program we are often dealing with challenging behaviors. We have made environmental changes along with creating extensive behavioral support programs for those who need them to minimize and prevent aggression. We have been striving to serve everyone who is interested in our services in some form whether thru an education class or in accessing the community. All questions and concerns about this program should be directed to Dawn. Dawn also fields all calls about the workshop, Individual Program Plans, schedules, community outings, absences, and transportation needs.
