Throughout 2017, we worked to complete our federally-mandated transition out of providing direct services through our community employment division called WorkNet. We have invited new employment service providers to Union County so individuals have many service provider choices in order to choose a provider that best meets their needs. We have helped dozens of individuals meet new service providers that they trust and we have passed the torch of being a leader in Ohio for employing individuals in the community to our service provider partners. Together, with our provider partners, we will collaborate and strive to support individuals in Union County with a developmental disability and will continue to be a leader, supporting individuals to work in their community.
The WorkNet staff will continue to support each individual’s employment journey by working with providers to coordinate jobs with people seeking employment and being an employment resource. However, WorkNet will no longer exist as a separate program. In the near future, information typically found through WorkNet, including employment resources and staff contact information, will be available through the Support Services division.
