ICF Launches New Personalized Employment Program

The Day Services Program of Indian Creek Foundation recently kicked off the new Personalized Employment Program to assist with placing their clients in job settings that meet their interests.

Indian Creek’s employment professionals perform a comprehensive assessment of a client’s interests and skills. This process identifies the strengths that the client already possesses; and our employment professionals assist the client in negotiating a work relationship that match the employers need to those strengths, skills, interest.

Consumers have begun taking part in the Personalized Employment Program and Indian Creek is ready to begin finding employment opportunities.  ICF is currently seeking employment partners in the following areas, but not limited to:

Music (recording/sales), Transportation, Sports, Automotive, Fitness, Brewing, and Pet Care.

The program seeks to provide a win-win outcome for the employer and the client. Employment can range from a few hours to a full day’s work.
