Support for Employment and Volunteer Opportunities
We assist the people we support to find employment and volunteer opportunities, that are based on their interests and expressed desires, and which give them valued roles in their community.
The Manager of Community Development and Volunteer Services oversees and monitors these connections so that people we support, as well as the employers, continue to be satisfied and to ensure that there is adequate and appropriate support provided.
The result of these efforts is tremendous community partnerships with area business, clubs and services. Emphasis has been placed on educating the community at large with a focus on rights, responsibilities and respect.
Some of the areas in which people we support are actively involved include:
- Working with children
- Being an educator
- Working with animals
- Volunteering in local clothing stores
- Meeting celebrities
- Working with flowers
- Assisting with photography
- Working in hardware stores
- Volunteering with school breakfast programs
- Volunteering with the Good Food Box and Gleaners Food Bank
- Recycling at our local college
- Working at a corner variety store
