Job Squad, Inc.
Formed in 1984, Job Squad, Inc. is a private, nonprofit organization and community rehabilitation program (CRP). Job Squad is all about jobs.
The mission of Job Squad, Inc. is to provide employment services and vocational skill development for individuals who experience barriers to employment.
Vision: Job Squad, Inc. will be the premier West Virginia Provider of integrated, community-based employment services by implementing evidence-based practices within the highest quality work environments.
The dignity, responsibility, and economic independence resulting from gainful employment is one of the most effective ways of enhancing self-reliance, facilitating recovery, changing attitudes, reducing dependency on public benefits, and promoting community acceptance of people with disabilities.
Employment opportunities are provided through:
- Employment with businesses in the community
- State, federal, and commercial contracts for custodial services, presort mail services, and grounds maintenance services.
Job Squad performs outreach activities to recruit individuals who want to work, but are experiencing barriers to employment. Through on-the-job training and supportive and therapeutic intervention, we strive to ensure successful work experiences, whether at a business in the community, on a service contract, or with their own small business.
