How to Receive Vocational Services
If you, or a person close to you, would like to find out more about JobOne’s employment programs, please contact:
- Cristy Carpenter, Employee Services Director, or 816-763-7822, ext. 702.
We will ask about your employment goals, and schedule a meeting to determine if we can help. You may be evaluated through an interview and hands-on skills tests in several job settings. If you meet our criteria, we will place you on our waiting list.
Note that JobOne does not provide transportation services to employment sites. Most of our employees with disabilities use Developmental Disability Services of Jackson County – eitas; Elite; OATS, Inc.; family or residential providers.
From time to time, JobOne employees, or those seeking our services, will have needs that we simply cannot meet. In these cases, JobOne staff will tap into a large referral network to ensure that each individual receives the services he or she needs. Referral sources include vocational rehabilitation, state and county case management, MOCSA, DFS, Social Security, and local food and shelter agencies.
