blockquoteJames* came to the Brantley Center five years ago. He had virtually no employable skills and was totally dependent on his guardian. After a thorough job skills evaluation, he began our job readiness program and on the job training. His progress was slow at first, but as his milestones were celebrated he began to feel good about himself and his abilities. Today he is employed as a courtesy clerk at a local supermarket and recently moved into his own apartment. Without the Employment Rehabilitation program he would likely still be unemployed and totally dependent on his guardian.


*To ensure client confidentiality, we named the participant James.
