PARC has identified two resources to supply non-traditional funding for job supports: 1) supplementary job coaching through a special United Way grant gives AbilityOne employees needed re-training and renewed encouragement to perform to standard, and 2) the Employment of Choice program sponsored 18 individuals with developmental disabilities who otherwise would be homebound for one day a week for a year.
