More people at Little City took the next step toward community employment as the first group of graduates entered the new EDS in the Community program.
EDS in the Community was designed to serve a dual purpose. It aims to assist participants in maintaining and growing upon their employment skills, helping to further their career development. Additionally, it serves the community as a whole by fostering and creating connections. The participants benefit with increased independence skills and personal goal enrichment as the program is designed to have participants spend about 50-75% of their week in the community. It is person-centered, with bi-annual interest surveys to allow for more individual choices, while providing them with the environment needed to grow and focus on goals and desires that are important to them individually.
Little City is excited to launch this new program that will undoubtedly help more people gain the community-based job opportunities they deserve.
