Organizational Employment (Work Services)

Work Services or Organizational Employment is a a job skills training center in which the people we serve learn different skills in a workshop setting while earning a paycheck.  Individuals have a choice of different jobs that are paid piece-rate or by the hour.

Each person will decide on what goals they want to achieve and will be supported by staff at Concerned, Inc. in reaching those goals.  Individual job skills training will be available to all individuals working in this program along with basic education if the people we serve should want to work in specific education areas.

Persons served work on small parts assembly.David labels polybags.  
Kurt works on the janitorial crew.Persons served choose their goals.  

People we serve may also choose how often they attend this service.  It may be part-time or full-time.

Our staff is trained in assisting each individual we serve in becoming more independent in all areas of our lives.  One of our goals is to make each person we serve independent in personal, community and vocational settings.  We have only been successful when the people we serve no longer need the support we offer.

Our staff works with the people we serve both in a group setting and individually in basic work skills such as attendance, safety, following directions, and staying on task.  Interpersonal skills such as working with others, personal hygiene and honesty are also important elements of job skill development.
