Employment Services

Program Description

DCO Employment Services is a nationally accredited program that has been helping people find and maintain successful employment since 1988 in the Springfield area. Our program is successful because DCO:

  • Finds jobs that match participants' interests and abilities with employers' needs
  • Provides high quality, on the job training for as long as needed
  • Offers long-term monitoring and is available for assistance at any time to either the employee or the employer

Who Can Attend?

Individuals who are over 16 and referred through Vocational Rehabilitation are eligible for services. A functional assessment using formal testing and work sites is completed to determine specific areas of interest, strength and need. Job Coaches provide training and supervision on the job.

Supported Employment applicants are referred through Vocational Rehabilitation who accept referrals from the school systems, Department of Mental Health Regional Office, Sheltered Workshops, and the general community.

Areas of Focus:

  • Work skill needs
