Employment is one of the core services provided by Community Options. We believe that everyone who wants to work should be given the support to do so, despite the level of their disabilities. To that end we have developed an array of income producing projects, from entrepreneurial businesses that employ people with and without disabilities, to supported employment with one to one job coaching, to landscaping and cleaning teams, to individual micro-enterprises. We will do whatever needs to be done to help people experience the self-esteem that comes with getting a paycheck or owning a business.
Our own Option Quest program provides community activities for people who are not yet interested in competitive employment. Its goal is to demonstrate the kind of jobs that exist in communities, to develop social skills, and to match people with volunteer or part time work. Option Quest is a portal, an entry to the world of employment.
