Highly recommended employment services and support!, 08-19-2019 11:57AM

By: Mother of Person Served in Cuyahoga county

This provider guide was not available when our son with Aspergers was trying to get support to find a job in the IT field. Although we thought we'd researched providers thoroughly, he had experiences that ranged from poor to acceptable with 3 other providers before we found UCP/Oakleaf. Since we had the prior experiences to compare it to, we cannot endorse UCP/Oakleaf's services and specialists enough! They were proactive - actually finding opportunities or pursuing leads for our son instead of only asking him to look at the online job sites and send in resumes. They accompanied him to an industry-related job fair and coached him on how to approach prospective employers. They walked him through mock interviews and offered any supports that could make him more comfortable in his job search. They were able to relate to him and talk frankly about things related to his career and job search. Ultimately, our son was offered a job from the job fair but did not want to disclose to his new employer so UCP/Oakleaf was not able to support him at work. I am sure they would have done an excellent job with post-placement if given the chance. (Fortunately, our son has been working at that full time job for over 2 years.) I recently attended a seminar where Oakleaf made an excellent and very knowledgeable presentation about their employment services. Based on our experience with them, everything they spoke about and said they do, is true!!

My son has received employment services through UCP (Oakleaf Partners) for the last year. To say I am impressed is an understatement. He was taught practical skills like, resume writing, interviewing and the importance of punctuality. His counselor was knowledgeable, supportive, easily accesible and caring. The good news is he got a job that he's very excited about! We are grateful for the assistance that was provided to help him obtain this goal. I have nothing but very good things to say about employment services, it's simply an excellent program that was invaluable to my son.

Hello,

I am an individual in my early 20's who received, and continues to receive job placement services. UCP helped me get a job with Whelan Security at Browns First Energy Stadium, and also at a factory where I currently am employed. Staff at UCP understand my needs, and helped me work on skills that ultimately contributed to my recent successes!

Thanks UCP!
