Phase One:  Planning for Work

During the planning, participants work closely with our staff, researching occupations, the local labor market, setting specific goals and developing individualized actions plans which may include training options.  Access to assistive technology and disability supports is available.

Phase Two:  Searching for Work

During the searching phase, clients conduct an active job search for full-time or part-time, or volunteer positions with support from our Employment Specialist until the right match is found.  After finding employment, our Employment Specialist may be able to follow-up and support clients for up to one year to help guarantee successful job retention.
