Career Resources Corporation (CRC) empowers individuals with disabilities to achieve their potential. Career Resources Corporation serves adults and teens, ages 16-75, diagnosed with intellectual, developmental, emotional, and physical disabilities such as autism, mental retardation, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, mental health, stroke and other neurological disorders.
CRC operates three core programs that each offer a variety of specialized services.
Vocational Services provides employment counseling and skills assessment to help clients determine a career path. These are individuals who are likely able to work independently in the community but require personalized support in resume building, interviewing, workplace role play, social skills development, communication strategies, career counseling, etc. After participants have completed the required training, CRC coordinates interviews with prospective employers. Individuals are referred to this program by the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC), the Veteran’s Northeast Outreach Center, or as private pay participants. In 2012, this program served 68 clients and is strategically positioned for expansion.
Day Habilitation Services
Day Habilitation Services provides developmental skills training designed to improve the functional abilities of clients. Clinical support is also provided including access to physical, occupational, and speech therapies. Serving 52 clients last year this initiative has seen a 37% growth in one year.
Residential Services provide individuals with developmental disabilities and brain injuries the necessary support to enable them to live in community residences, apartments, their own homes, or with family care providers. Reaching 78 clients in 2012 this program underwent many positive changes including formalizing plans to develop two new homes.
