Getting Started: One-on-one meeting

We start with a one-on-one meeting with you to provide assessment and eligibility determination. We go over your medical, social, financial, educational, and vocational experiences. Then we work with you to develop an individualized plan, offering guidance and counseling to help you reach your goals for employment and increased independence. Whether you’re looking for a job, training, assistive technology, independent living, business enterprises or other services, we can point you in the right direction and get your started.
