Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
MISSION STATEMENT: To assist individuals we serve to live and work in the community.
MOTTO Community Integration,
VISION STATEMENT Housing and gainful employment for all individuals with disabilities,
Respecting the dignity and right to privacy of others;
Believing that all individuals can live and work in the community;
Creating and maintaining a safe/secure workplace for staff and clients; and,
Taking personal responsibility for excellence and integrity
Our funders include: MaineCare, DHHS, U.S. Department of Education and BRS. We believe that an active partnership with area employers is essential for our success and continued growth. To ensure such collaboration, we have formed Business Partnership Councils (BPC) in every location in the State of Maine where we operate programs. We work with BPC members to maximize employment opportunities for clients, to ensure that our clients meet local labor market expectations and that we satisfy our three customers: the funding agencies who fund our operations, the clients we serve and the businesses who employ our clients.
Services to clients include assistance to access community resources and supports, therapy, training in job seeking skills and job development, placement and post placement support to ensure job retention and success. Services to employers include screening of candidates to ensure that only qualified and interested individuals are recommended for job openings (which reduces employee turnover), access to training programs such as Situational Assessment, On-The Job Training and Transitional Employment Programs (TEP), (which guarantees completion of specified tasks for limited periods of time at no cost to the employer), information about programs and resources on ADA, job accommodations, tax benefits in hiring people with disabilities, and support at the job site and off the site to ensure that the employee continues to be able to perform his or her job to industry standards.
