Via Employment Services - Via Work Training Services Workshop
Via’s Employment services are based on the belief that Everybody Works™ and no one should be excluded. Work is a typical part of adult life and everyone should have the opportunity to benefit from being a part of the employed community. A job offers more than a paycheck; having a job means having a place to go and something important to do. A job provides a chance to meet new people, establish friendships and enjoy the company of others. Work means learning something new, practicing old skills and making a contribution by accomplishing something meaningful.
Employment Adds Purpose to Our Lives
Via believes everyone can work and supports Employment First initiatives. We also realize that families, caregivers and people with disabilities may want or need a stepping stone to adult services or community involvement. The Via Work Training Services Workshop assists individuals and their teams understand what services are available, explores funding sources and works with teams to transition individuals into more inclusive services.
