Core Services

Guided by the One Stop principles of universal access and customer choice, the One Stop system offers lifelong, universal access to informational and self-directed core services.

Staff is also familiar with college requirements and are able to guide students/clients through the college/private school systems to ensure they receive the services they are seeking.

Training Services

Training may be available to individuals who are unable to find and retain employment for self-sufficiency as a result of core and intensive services. These services include occupational skills training, on-the-job training, and customized training.

Supportive Services

Supportive services may be available for adults to enable them to participate in core, intensive, and training services, based on the need of the student/client.
