Program Overview

adultClermont County Board of Developmental Disabilities Adult Services offers paid work opportunities to individuals at the locations that offer work and in community enclave locations.  Adult Services continues to operate a number of enclave opportunities in the community. These enclaves offer individuals the chance to work in businesses throughout Clermont County doing light assembly, document preparation, hotel cleaning, and lawn maintenance and landscaping.  PRIME (Promoting Real Inclusive Meaningful Employment) is another option offered to individuals.  This small program works more exclusively with individuals who are interested in obtaining a community job, but need to continue to work on some soft skills that would help them be successful for the long term in the community.    Other program offerings include community integration, volunteerism, and life skills/life enrichment activities for those individuals for whom working is a more long term goal, or have decided that they are at the point in their life where work is less a priority.

The Employment Services program provides a variety of vocational trainings which include; job seeking, teaching interview skills (mock interviews), developing/writing resumes, job coaching, and follow along services.  This program currently supports over 200 people located throughout the community in different business locations.  Employment Services also partners with other local entities in supporting people with disabilities find work.  These include partnerships with Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities, and local school districts (assisting transition students).  Bridges to Transition, a grant opportunity jointly funded by the Clermont County Board of DD and Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities is offered to students who are 14-22 to provide opportunities to practice work skills and gain real employment experiences that they can use to get a job in the future.
