   Holiday House's Prevocational Services Program serves individuals who experience disabilities and circumstances that pose barriers to employment. Participants must receive authorization through the Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) from one of the following: IRIS, Lakeland Care District, or another Family Care Agency.  If you are not found eligible for services, self pay is an option.

   Prevocational Services are designed to provide training, skill building and on-the-job
experience. 
 Participants are assigned a Case Manager upon entry into the program. The Case Manager helps the participant to define personal and vocational goals.  A plan is then developed to assist participants work toward these goals.  The personal and vocational goals established with the participant are reviewed and revised semi-annually.   

   Individuals may develop the skills necessary for 
successful
employment, such as:

•    Development of positive relationships with co-workers 
         and supervisors
•    Improvement of communication skills
•    Teamwork
•    Following directions
•    Improvement of work pace
•    Punctuality and attendance

 
 Program participants are given information about other vocational opportunities and services that may be
available to them.
