What makes REACH different than other employment programs for DD/ID Services?
There are a few things that separate us from our competitors.
- We are a local company that started from nothing but a dream and hard work back in the 1960’s
- We pay our participants in our employment services minimal wage.
- We offer a variety of work types out in the community.
- Our mission is our number one priority, as a non profit we don’t work for profits we work for life fulfillment.
I have a felony, can I work/volunteer with participants at REACH Inc.?
Under Federal Law we are required to do background checks for employment for anyone who wishes to work with participants. If the background comes back and you do not meet the requirements we can not hire you. We use this as a basis for volunteer applications as well.
Individual Employment Services are much like our group employment services the only difference is that individual employment is geared towards a single participant at a single location. Work experience is more geared towards that spacific job and the skills needed to keep employment at that location.
There is a chance the employer will want to hire the participant after gaining knowledge and skills for their job. This however is not guaranteed.
