Community Employment Supports

Having a job represents much more than earning a salary.  Employment, including the kind of work one performs, is empowering.  It influences identity and sense of belonging.  Employment is an opportunity to contribute -- to do something that matters.

DHL is one of the many companies that is partnering with RedwoodAdults explore vocational interests with an employment specialist; develop an employment plan, and access training or services to develop work and workplace skills.  Job development/placement services help adults find employment that matches their preferences and skill sets.  With on-site coaching, adults learn the job and build supportive relationships with coworkers.  Long-term support fosters job retention through supportive services provided on an intermittent basis.

Hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. with coaching based on work schedule.
