What We Do

Our person-centered approach meets people where they are, helps them identify their goals and abilities, provides them with the tools and training to help them successfully pursue a career path, and most important of all, helps them believe in themselves and fulfill their own potential.

Vocational
Rehabilitation
Our Vocational Rehabilitation department offers classroom training, real-life experiences, one-on-one coaching, and on-going support to help adults with physical, psychological, developmental, cognitive, and emotional disabilities—as well as other challenges—secure and maintain gainful employment. We meet our clients where they are, help them identify their strengths and interests, and work with them to chart their path towards long-term success.
Career
Counseling
Utilizing a one-on-one, highly-customized approach, our Career Counseling & Job Placement department not only helps our clients navigate today’s increasingly complex and demanding job market, we provide our clients with the support they need to stay focused and motivated throughout the job-seeking process, no matter how long that may take.
