Choosing We Care Support Services As Your Employment Network
At We Care Support Services we take our role as your Employment Network very seriously. We know you are taking a big step by looking for an EN who can help you realize your goals for returning to work or going to work. We think you should learn as much as you can about what we and other Employment Networks have to offer before making your selection.
To qualify for services offered at We Care Support Services which include assistance with job placement and career counseling, you should meet the following criteria:
- You are receiving SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and/or SSI benefits (Supplemental Security Income)
- You currently have at least a GED (or) High School Diploma or nearing completion
- You have transportation or reliable means for getting to work
- You have been employed within the past 4 years
You should be interested in pursuing substantial, gainful employment (e.g. full-time job or part-time work that earns over $1170 per month). We know that, for many, returning to work or going to work for the first time means starting out with a part time job and at We Care Support Services we support that. Our focus is to help you achieve self-sufficiency, meaning that you no longer receive Social Security cash benefits.
We currently do not provide the funds or resources to assist with the following:
- Finding employment in the home
- Starting up a business
- Paying for higher education degrees, courses or training
Again, if you do not meet the above criteria, and feel your situation warrants an exception, please call or write to explain.
Our job placement services are provided by working closely with our Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors. They will determine your needs by taking into consideration your abilities, interests, how long you have been out of work, your education level and what experiences you have obtained while you were actively working, if applicable. By taking all these factors into consideration, the Counselor can best determine if and how we can assist you. Together we will locate jobs that match your profile.
Career Counseling includes assisting you in finding employment by giving you job leads, advice on resume writing, interviewing skills, and advice on how to handle difficult situations you may encounter while trying to find employment. Once you find employment, our Counselors will be there every step of the way for the next five years to help you to remain employed. If you are not sure what path to take, or need to change careers due to your disability or other reasons, our Counselors can assist you in determining what transferable skills you may have to transition into another line of work.
