Many individuals who have never worked before or who have had unsuccessful employment experiences find additional work training, experience and support to be valuable in making successful community based employment a reality. Here's how the program works!

Vocational Assessment: Individuals with disabilities engage in a variety of work sample testing, and situational assessment on various jobs. As a result, vocational strengths and needs are determined which assist in planning the training a persons needs. Pre-vocational and vocational planning is person-centered, and focuses on the individuals personal goals, preferences and interests.

Pre-Vocational Services: Activities are developed that will prepare an individual for
employment. These services include support and training in behaviors related to following directions, attending to task, task completion, problem solving, safety and assisting the person to adjust to the
productive and social relationship demands of a work place.

Vocational Services: Specific job training and work experience is gained in our work center, which provides paid employment experience through sub-contracted work. Skills are developed, and work quality and quantity issues are addressed. Individual job interests are developed. Confidence and improved self-esteem as an adult worker is also developed, and frequently leads to successful employment in community-based jobs.
