What is the Goal of Day Services?
For information about Wildwood’s Day Services, contact Matt McMorris at Mmcmorris@wildwoodprograms.org.
The goal of employment services is to support people as they search for and attain employment through things like resume writing, interview preparation, application assistance and onsite coaching. Through community-based work assessments, training and internships, employment services help people get ready for and find competitive employment. Employment Services depends on strong partnerships with the business community and it helps employers to understand the value of hiring people with disabilities and realize the full benefit of inclusive employment.
