 Working Wednesday

Our August Working Wednesday is R.C.

He participated in the Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) Summer Work Experience program. This is a five week program throughout the summer where an person works at a location with a job coach to develop the skills necessary for employment. During many conversations with R.C., his SSA, Misty Angle, determined that employment was something R.C. was interested in, but he and his family were not sure where to begin.

SSA Angle made the referral to OOD and the process began.He selected to work with Employment Options as his employment provider and began his journey in July. R.C.'s job involved a lot of manual labor, a task he was hesitant about, but a few week's in he admitted to really liking his job. He was tired when returning home, but looked forward to getting his paycheck.

Congratulations R.C.!
