Community Employment

 

Employment Opportunities

 

Community employment is the preferred path for working-age adults with developmental disabilities, and individuals should have the opportunity to explore career options and seek jobs that fit their skills and interests.

The Community Employment and Transition Programs are designed to work together to help individuals meet their fullest potential in terms of employment. The Community Employment staff assist adults with developmental disabilities to obtain and maintain employment as direct hires into the community. Staff members work in roles as Job Coaches to help individuals find and be successful in jobs, and Job Developers work with businesses to find out their staffing needs.

The Transition staff work closely with Warren County school districts to individualize a plan for each student to ensure they receive the appropriate training and experience to transition successfully from high school to a community job.

Together the Community Employment and Transition Programs focus on developing relationships with various businesses and community organizations in order to enhance employment opportunities for all of the individuals served.
