The goal of ACR Health’s Employment Initiative is to promote and support independence and economic self-sufficiency by finding and retaining employment with health insurance. This initiative will provide intensive job readiness and job placement services to eligible persons in ACR Health’s nine county service region. Participants will achieve this goal based on accomplishing the following objectives: enrollment into care management and support services, attaining a GED, attending job readiness and career trainings, applying for jobs specific to participants’ strengths and interests and attaining and maintaining employment. Outcomes will include: increased abilities to function in the community by acquiring and improving financial independence; increased levels of economic self-sufficiency; increased knowledge and skills necessary to manage stress; increased self-esteem; decreased need for public assistance and publically funded health insurance and improved quality of life.
The Employment Specialist will work with clients to assess job readiness, provide technical assistance and training on job preparation, assist with job searches and placement, provide post-employment support services to promote job retention.
