Workforce Challenge

Andrew worked for the local high school as a custodian for 13 years and was let go due to a misunderstanding with his immediate supervisor regarding another co-worker. This devastated Andrew.

Workforce Solution

Voc Rehab provided Andrew with a Job Service Provider Coach, as Andrew has a developmental disability. The Coach brought Andrew to the Workforce Center. WFC staff assisted with job readiness activities and helped with his job search. Andrew worked hard to find a job and was very determined to find a full time permanent position. When an opening for a custodian at the local youth detention center came across the WFC staff’s desk, she called Andrew’s coach.

Outcomes & Benefits

Andrew applied and was selected for this position. He feels like this would not have happened if it weren’t for the help of workforce and voc rehab. He says this has turned his life around.
