Some people want to work outside the RVI employment and habilitation center and make an hourly wage, but they are not ready for community employment. In our Contracted Services Department, individuals work alongside supervisors and associates at janitorial, mowing, maintenance, and other jobs in the community.
The person served by RVI receives transportation, support, encouragement, reminders, and guidance – and a paycheck! Individuals can gain experience working outside of the employment and habilitation center, while receiving a similar level of support to what they would receive in the center.
The hours and locations vary, so the individuals can try different shifts, types of work and work environments. This department has many seasonal contracts, so more work is available during the summer months.
