How We Help
You Find A Job
Currently, we help individuals with job placement through Pennsylvania’s Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR).
The Pennsylvania Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) provides rehabilitation and employment services for people with disabilities. OVR provides services to eligible individuals both directly and through a network of approved vendors such as Opportunities Unlimited.
How We Monitor Your Allowed
Time To Work
We use time cards to monitor your hours per week worked. We are careful to work around any governmental disability stipulations some individuals are required to work under (such as not working more than X amount of hours per week or other SSI provisions).
How We Coach You Along the Way
Job coaching is individual and developed on a case-by-case basis. Often, our job coaches will start with an assessment of your skills. From there, we help you build a, “skills plan” that aids your job search.
How We Work With Your SSI and Allowed Hours of Work
We are careful to monitor your hours per week worked. We also assign you a caseworker who makes sure you’re appropriately filling out paperwork related to your SSI or other governmental regulations.
Success For Job Seeker
Every 90 days you are evaluated by a crew leader and manager via an evaluation sheet. The evaluation gives clients the opportunity to see their growth and areas for improvement.
