Easterseals Northern Colorado Employment Programs are offered to give clients a variety of support options to meet their work goals. Transportation is not provided for any of our employment programs.
Northern Colorado offers four employment programs to meet clients work goals:
Group Enclave at Habitat for Humanity ReStore - Loveland, Colorado - Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Easterseals Colorado has partnered with Habitat for Humanity to provide a meaningful, supported work environment. At ReStore, up to eight clients work in a group setting in all aspects of the retail departments. Clients work alongside ReStore employees & volunteers and learn valuable skills - time management, organization, customer service, pricing, team work, and how to make independent decisions about their job. Through their entire shift, clients are supported with an Easterseals Colorado job coach. The job coach is able to provide job support as much or as little as the client needs, but is also able to give clients the ability to work independently with natural support of ReStore employees.
Career Academy - Loveland, Colorado - Mondays through Fridays, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Career Academy is based out of Easterseals Colorado's Northern Colorado office in Loveland, but is a mobile job training community program. This job training program provides community options to work experience for those with disabilities interested in learning what they would like to do for employment; while also learning the necessary life skills to stay competitive and active in the workforce.
