Employment Development Services

One of the most crucial steps in life-stabilization is securing stable employment. Our Employment Development Services program assists our residents during the job-search process after their initial day treatment. The EDS program focuses on training our residents in job-readiness and maintaining employment. The EDS program also helps our residents identify and achieve their long-term career goals.
