From Neighborhood Group Homes (NGH) to Community Living Arrangements (CLA), individuals who receive residential supports or participate in our programs and services, depend on Community Interactions, Inc., to help them make their own choices and enjoy the same quality of life as others in their community.
Pre-Vocational & Supported Employment
Community Interactions is proud to offer pre-vocational training to individuals through a unique community-based program. Through volunteerism and outreach, individuals acquire and enhance professional and social skills and contribute to their community. For example, some of our program participants volunteer to assist seniors in nursing homes and senior centers with arts and crafts and Bingo, while others work in the thrift shop, collaborating with employees to sort clothes.
When they’re ready to begin their job search, Community Interactions’ Supported Employment Program assists individuals in successfully navigating employment in today’s competitive workplace. An array of services is available to each individual, including career counseling, vocational profile development, situational assessment, job development and placement, and job coaching.
CI’s Supported Employment Program staff collaborates with each individual to identify their interests, skills and abilities, work experience, and education. Our Employment Specialist works with them to set career goals, and assists them with resume writing, job application completion, job searches, and interview skills. Once they begin their position in a new workplace, the job coaching portion of the program supports the individual while they learn their job duties and responsibilities.
