The Employment for People with Diverse Abilities Program provides a one-stop service for individuals with barriers to employment. The program is client-centered and comprehensive; all services are individualized and based on the client’s needs. We also work with employers on the client’s behalf to open doors to successful employment opportunities.
This program helps people in our community who face barriers to employment whether they be physical, mental, or environmental. We strive to help people find meaningful and authentic employment based on their interests, abilities and experience/education. We offer assessments, skills development, training programs, job search skills, assistance with job placement and ongoing support for both the employee and employer following job placement. If necessary, we work with people and employers to customize employment.
To qualify for this program:
- Unemployed or work less than 10 hrs/week
- A resident of Jasper
- Ready and willing to secure a minimum of part time hours
- Have a barrier to employment that requires consideration.
