CCARC assists individuals in developing the skills needed to secure and maintain meaningful competitive, integrated employment. Our employment teams work with the individual and their planning team using Person-Centered Planning to determine the amount of support required while on the job.
Pre-Employment Transition Services
Our Transition Services program provides young adults with person-centered, community-based vocational and independent living skills, opportunities to prepare them for the workforce and a more independent life.
CCARC offers various options of supported employment programming to meet the needs of the individual. We foster opportunities to learn valuable work skills and to find and secure competitive, integrated employment.
Our Project SEARCH program partners with The Hospital of Central Connecticut to provide total immersion of interns in the business to provide training in employability and independent living skills.
We provide a time-limited evaluation of an individual’s abilities for employment. These assessments take place in a community-based employment site.
Diversify Your Workforce
CCARC is an excellent resource for reliable, well-trained employees to fill a range of positions and tasks. We offer job crews of 3-6 employees with on-site job coaching or we will work with you to find an individual employee that compliments your business.
If you hire an individual, we train the employee for free and provide job coaching until they are ready to work independently. We remain in contact with the business, address issues directly, and provide job coaching on an as-needed basis.
If a job crew better suits your business needs, CCARC will handle the supervision and administration. A Direct Support Professional (DSP) provides job-coaching on-site to ensure productivity and satisfaction.
Our cost-effective, flexible programs offer employers both quality work and productivity. Benefits to employers include:
Extremely low turnover
Commitment to your goals
Higher employee morale
Positive brand impression
Develop customer loyalty through social impact
How It Works
We take care of the screening and supervision at no cost to you. A CCARC Direct Support Professional (DSP) learns the job first, then teaches, supervises, and coaches the individual or the job crew. We take the worry out of hiring. You benefit from trained, motivated employees who know your needs.
