The goal is to move in­di­vid­u­als to greater in­de­pen­dence and in­creased self-re­liance. Life skills, bank­ing, com­merce, so­cial skills, public trans­porta­tion skills, and com­puter and in­ter­net flu­en­cies are de­vel­oped, ini­tially in con­trolled set­tings and sub­se­quently in com­mu­nity set­tings. Clients are also taught em­ploy­ment skills by per­form­ing in­ter­nal work for min­i­mum wage, in­clud­ing jan­i­to­rial, kitchen, lawn and main­te­nance du­ties. These skills pre­pare the in­di­vid­ual for com­mu­nity em­ploy­ment, de­vel­op­ing not only spe­cific work skills, but also gen­eral skills of time­li­ness, main­te­nance to task, time­keep­ing, ac­cept­ing su­per­vi­sion and more. Uses vol­un­teerism as a ve­hi­cle to get work ex­pe­ri­ence and re­lated skills de­vel­op­ment. Pro­vides a coach to as­sist in job seek­ing, in­ter­view­ing, on-the-job train­ing (at no cost to the em­ployer) and fol­low-along ser­vices (post-em­ploy­ment in­ter­ven­tions as needed to prob­lem solve, re­train and pre­pare for ad­vance­ment).
