We operate on the simple belief that everyone who wants to be employed is employable, in real, honest-to-goodness jobs at competitive wages with local companies.
We are able to successfully match a candidate with a position by thoroughly evaluating a person’s interests, aptitude and skills to compile a complete assessment, including aptitude and situational, and use it to make an employment recommendation.
We offer job coaching and on-site assessments to ensure job performance and satisfaction. We proactively help businesses create positions for some individuals, identifying and carving out roles, and we carefully vet and recruit small and large local companies.
After over 20 years of providing this service, companies trust us and our reputation for excellence. That’s why 95% of our participants are gainfully employed in jobs they love. They get experience, an income, promotions, raises, expanded shifts and hours.
Most of all, they get an unparalleled sense of what real independence is like.
