Who can partner?
If you are a community non-profit, civic/religious organization or government agency that assists men and women to find employment or attain self-sufficiency, we would be happy to partner with you to help your clients achieve their career goals.
Who is eligible for services?
The most important qualification for clients is job readiness. Stable housing arrangements, reading and English language skills, and transportation access are helpful characteristics. We are the icing on the cake. Referral to SIS should be done after the client has taken advantage of other community resources preparing them for successful employment, like resume preparation and skills evaluation.
How do I refer a client?
If you have not used our services before or if it has been a while, Contact our Outreach Coordinator for the most current referral form and procedures. (Include your contact information and county location.) We regularly make adjustments to our procedures to best serve our clients. If you share this form with colleagues, please have them contact Ms. Botsford so that they will receive updates in the future. Being up to date ensures that your client gets in without delay. Give your client a copy of the actual form so they can fill it out and bring it with them for their appointment as it has the best directions. There is a phone number for our 24/7 appointment line on the form and you or your client can call to make an appointment with a live operator. Your client will need to have your contact information in order to make an appointment.
