An important first step into real world employment
“Work is essential… it is the glue that binds us to society.”– Bob Harvey, Founding Director
When our members are ready and able, they can enter our Transitional Employment program to get real world job experience. They get jobs with our contracted area businesses, and work under our staff’s supervision. They earn a real paycheck and learn to manage their money. This program builds confidence and provides valuable experience to help acquire permanent work.
Long-term meaningful employment backed by our support
Members who have job experience and are ready to return to work have the help of our Supported Employment program. We provide guidance in the application and interview process, and will help the employer understand the member’s capabilities and limitations. Once hired, the member performs the job independently, with our support available as needed.
