Community Employment Services

PARC offers a community based program that provides assistance in obtaining and maintaining successful employment through integration within the community. People with disabilities are placed in local jobs and job coaches support the individual through training and quality control. Once training is completed, the job coach will provide ongoing support as needed to ensure success.

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson
