The Workforce Reintegration Program (WRP) uses a holistic, supported employment approach in working to help individuals overcome the multiple barriers that prevent them from finding and maintaining self-sustaining employment.
Paul W. came to Chester County OIC in the summer of 2013. He was unemployed and living in a homeless shelter when he entered the program. He kept his weekly scheduled appointments and worked diligently at his office visits to update his resume and search for employment. His hard work paid off and he obtained a warehouse position locally earning $16.50/hr. with benefits. He was able to move into a rental property in the area and continues to do well at this job.
Juana F. came to the program in the spring of 2014. She was unable to find work as a LPN and was working as a certified nursing assistant in a hospital. She attended the job fair at The Charles Melton Center with the nursing assistants and landed an LPN position at a rehabilitation hospital earning $21.25/hr. She was also offered a position as an LPN at Bowling Green Brandywine.
