The Pathway To Work Day Treatment Program is structured and designed to help participants build their community access skills.
Participants begin by identifying individualized goals through the person-centered planning process. The goals guide the participants’ choices of center-based and/or community activities and the staff provides the supports each individual needs to achieve the goals identified in their person-centered plan.
Pathway To Work collaborates with school partners, families and other agencies to create workshops specific to the needs and abilities of the attendees. In a classroom setting, our trained staff provides instruction on self-advocacy, workplace readiness and social and independent living skills. Job exploration counseling, post-secondary education counseling and work-based learning experiences are also provided when needed.
Pathway To Work provides individualized instruction, training and supports for participants to develop work-related skills and behaviors to support their goal of achieving competitive integrated employment. Part of the program is helping participants understand the meaning, value and demands of work and developing the soft-skills necessary for successful employment.
Pathway to Work offers a variety of individualized integrated, competitive employment opportunities. A participant’s person-centered [lan will detail the employment choice(s) best suited to their strengths, preferences, and interests or if new employment options should be explored. All participants are provided supervision (both on-site and off-site), and transportation needed to support all program activities.
St. Vincent de Paul featured one of our participants, Veronica Green, in their Summer Volunteer Spotlight. Veronica was interviewed by retired local sports anchor Bruce Cooper for SVDP's 100 Days of Summer campaign. We are grateful for our community partnership and so proud of Veronica!
