The Scioto County Board of DD has been helping individuals find work in the community for nearly 30 years.
Through the Community Employment Program, area businesses are contacted and jobs are developed for individuals eligible for Scioto DD services. These individuals are employed directly by the businesses.
STAR, Inc. is contracted to provide the supports and training needed so individuals learn their jobs and adapt to a new environment. STAR, Inc. also provides on-going supports throughout each individual’s employment in the form of transportation and follow-up training. This helps ensure that both the employees and the employers experience success.
