Via Prevocational Services provide hands-on vocational training helping individuals gain skills and confidence through both facility- and community-based activities. Via staff educate people on the variety of community and employment services available, explain and explore funding sources, and help people transition to more inclusive opportunities in the community when they are ready.
Via believes everyone can work and supports Employment First initiatives. We also realize that families, caregivers, and people with disabilities may want or need to pursue more training and become accustomed to reporting to a workplace before pursuing community employment.
Employment Adds Purpose to Our Lives
A job offers more than a paycheck. Having a job gives purpose and fulfillment, and offers opportunities to meet new people, establish friendships, and build relationships. Work means learning something new, honing established skills, and making meaningful contributions.
