The Community Employment program is designed to help individuals with disabilities learn valuable job skills and to assist them in obtaining employment. Community Employment employs over 50 individuals in various businesses throughout Houston County. These individuals hold regular jobs and receive support services from our staff. The individuals who participate in the program benefit from the generosity of the employers in the community who provide employment for them to learn how to become a productive employee. Community Employment is paid employment in an ordinary workplace with pay equal to other employees in that position. The program involves job coaches who are on-site regularly and are available to management staff at any time.
We also provide transportation to insure the employees get to work as scheduled.
