Lighthouse partners with the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) to assist young adults and students transitioning into the workforce. We do this by performing assessments to determine their interests, and connecting them with opportunities for job shadowing, applying for jobs, and job coaching.
We have been able to continue providing some services for OVR through this difficult time by supporting two individuals that worked in essential jobs with their job coach, up until their positions were suspended during the ‘stay at home’ order. We have been able to provide specific assessments remotely for two individuals. We have 13 purchase orders for services to be provided when the ‘stay at home order’ is lifted.
