September 19, 2017
In the last 12 months, the Opportunity Center served 500 individuals with developmental, mental, and physical disabilities in Calhoun, Clay, Cleburne, Coosa, Randolph, and Talladega counties.

We assisted 157 individuals in Job Preparation Services including job preparation, employment evaluation, and skills training. 

We placed 140 individuals in jobs that closely match their skills and interests to maximize their success.

133, or 95%, of those placed have retained those positions for at least 90 days. This is an outstanding statistic. Consumers are being placed in employment that interests them and they enjoy.

Over 200 students in our coverage area have been evaluated by our professionals to determine job skills.

We taught job skills training to 73 high school students.
 
Our job coaches conducted 16 industry and college tours. In addition, they involved their consumers in over 30 employment expos.

Our instructors and job coaches conducted a 3-week Job Employment Training summer program that included 40 hours of classroom job readiness training and 40 hours of employment training for which they were paid.
