Heartland's purpose is assist adults with disabilities to prepare for, obtain and maintain community employment. Our professional staff supports individuals to help them realize their work goals in areas of their choice. Working side by side with these individuals helps create a sense of pride and reinforces the work ethic necessary for successful work situations. There are three key components to our program:

  • Job Development: Job developers not only search for the proper job fit but also help those in our program learn about themselves and create a foundation to build upon with each opportunity. Resume development, interviewing skills, and job matching are all key components taught during the development phase. Each individual has at least one visit per week with a Job Developer to ensure solid communication and focus.
  • Job Coaching: Just as important as finding a job, Job Coaching is essential to help many individuals become stabilized in their employment. Job Coaches will observe and assist our clients on the job while communicating with the employer so everyone knows the expectations and adjustments are made quickly to enhance the long-term prospects for workforce retention.

Service components may include the following, depending up individual needs:

  • Job Skills Assessment
  • Job Matching
  • Resume Development
  • Interview Coaching
  • Education on what employers want
  • Job Searching
  • Job Coaching
  • Benefits Counseling

V.O.I.C.E. CDC has initiated a grant funded program to provide assistance to teachers, students in special education and their families as they prepare for entry into adult life. This assistance targets students exploring their work, school and community living options after they finish secondary education. This transition is challenging and it is always good to plan ahead due to funding and program limitations that might affect their decisions.

Heartland Employment Services is designed to be proactive, educational, and informative. Our offices are located in Rensselaer and Monticello with staff located in the field. To get assistance from Heartland Employment Services, contact us to submit a direct referral to our funding source, Vocational Rehabilitation. Our services are state funded and incur little to no cost to participants.
