EMPLOYMENT SERVICES

The Center offers a variety of employment related services to assist people with disabilities in the preparation and attainment of employment.

Services include resume writing, job skills training, job search skills, interview skills, and training on the impact working has on benefits such as SSDI, SSI, etc.

As an Employment Network the Center works with SSDI beneficiaries and SSI recipients who have received a "Ticket to Work" from the Social Security Administration and want to go to work.

In addition to employment services already discussed, the Center will assist the Ticket holder with:

    • Having the opportunity to do some career exploration
    • Developing the skills necessary to obtain work
    • Receiving the necessary training to obtain work
    • Job placement assistance
