Employment and Independence

Helping seniors remain independent, and giving adults of all ages the the tools they need for a productive career

We provide advocacy, in-home support and transportation services to help older adults maintain independence and remain at home safely.

Earning income from employment is an important goal for so many of the people who come to us seeking to provide for their families and to improve their quality of life. Our team serves some of Rochester’s most vulnerable populations such as refugees who have joined our community, youth without a high school diploma seeking a strong beginning to a career, and those addressing mental health and substance use challenges who are ready to begin anew.
