Peer Employment Connections Program
Are you wanting to go back to work, but you aren’t sure if you are ready? Are you afraid of the transition from disability benefits to a work schedule? Perhaps you need support keeping the job you have? Peer Employment Connections (PEC) is for anyone who wants resources and support to achieve their employment goals. PEC offers weekly peer support groups that support participants to address fears and barriers about returning to work or work through obstacles they are encountering in their job. PEC participants have access to vocational assessments, job search tools, resume building, interview preparation, coaching, benefits planning, employment-related clothing and transportation support, and ongoing support for job retention.
The PEC program supports the message that anyone can work at a competitive paying job if provided with the resources and supports that they need.
