The Next Step is Job Placement & Continuing Education


Next Step Recovery Housing has had a great success record in placing clients in new jobs to help them supplement their incomes and work a positive program of recovery.

We have job referrals as well as professional resume services to ensure that all clients can find jobs that will suit their work experience and help them to develop marketable skills. 

  • We work closely with area staffing agencies to facilitate placement for our clients in local businesses
  • We also coordinate placement through Career Links, to help clients learn the skills needed for interviews, computer job search training, along with many other skills needed by some clients

Next Step Recovery Housing sees the need of some clients to pursue continuing their education, regardless of age or skill level. Some individuals have not completed high school, trade school or college. We feel that continuing education can be an essential tool toward meeting one’s goals in recovery.

 

  • Through other agencies we are able to provide our clients with GED classes to those who need to continue with their high school education at no cost
  • We work side by side with OVR (Office of Vocational Rehabilitation) so that our clients may receive help with continuing education. OVR, provides vocational rehabilitation services to help persons prepare for, obtain, or maintain employment. OVR provides services to eligible individuals both directly and through a network of approved vendors.  The OVR counselor, during face-to-face interviews, assists customers in selecting their choice of vocational goals, services and service providers. An Individualized Plan for Employment (IPE) is developed, outlining a vocational objective, services, providers and responsibilities.
  • Many clients have decided to further their education with returning to college. Our knowledgeable staff can help with the admissions process, along with working with financial aid to acquire all financial assistance available to the client. We are also proficient at helping clients to receive grants to further their education.
