Participants

Participants

We work with individuals who have a variety of support needs. We do not exclude anyone based on his or her perceived limitations or challenges. The job opportunities we offer enable our participants to become integrated into the workforce.

Individuals are employed onsite at area businesses, providing real jobs, with real pay, real responsibilities, and real rewards.

In preparation for employment, we take the time to get to know you by asking detailed questions and listening carefully to your needs. We help you develop a resume and assist you with the interviewing process. By assessing your individual skills and experience, we find jobs that best fit you.

We also assist individuals in finding meaningful ways to contribute in the community through volunteering and community participation as well as support to attend community college classes.

If being your own boss sounds like a better plan for you, we can support you in owning and operating your own small business.
