About Our Employment Services

Wellness Connections has a program to help members find employment after their training. Click here for more information.

Our Employment Services Program includes a dedicated team of Employment Specialists, i.e. job developers, job coaches. Several members of our team are also certified as Offender Employment Specialists (OES).

Our Employment Services Program staff work hand-in-hand with complementary departments (outreach, housing, health & wellness, Reentry) depending on the individual’s specific needs and goals.

Employment Services includes:

  • Prevocational Training
  • Job Development & Placement
  • On-going Support to Maintain Employment
  • GED & pre-GED tutoring

In both 2016 and 2017, Wellness Connections was honored to be awarded an Operational Excellence Award from Cenpatico Integrated Care, in recognition of the excellent work conducted by our Employment Services Program staff.

Social Enterprises (consumer-operated businesses):

In addition to the employment services described above, Wellness Connections is developing peer-run Social Enterprises in three communities served (Culinary/catering in Sierra Vista, Appliance Connections in Safford, Juice Bar in Douglas,). These enterprises serve as vehicles for on-the-job training, as well as paid work opportunities. Revenue generated from these efforts will be reinvested in sustaining and growing the programs.
