Programs:

Past experience managing similar vocational training programs has revealed a broad range of common issues among the majority of program participants. Typically, general skill sets that most people take for granted have been lost through years of homelessness and often substance abuse. These skill sets range from the most basic of needs, such as personal hygiene to the ability to manage the day-to-day responsibilities of independent living, such as retaining employment or handling household finances.
The proprietary On Track curriculum has been designed to teach these specific skill sets. Initially, the primary tracks cover topics such as personal care and health issues, social skills development, communication, job retention, individual finances and leadership. Secondary tracks focus on vocation-specific skills and certifications, while optional tracks allow for personal or spiritual development. Of particular note, the secondary tracks include vocational safety sessions using established curriculum trusted and used by workers’ compensation leader Pinnacol Assurance and employers throughout the state.
 
The tracks are taught at the individuals’ pace using a DVD and workbook format in our on-site classroom. Participants are measured throughout the program using a number of surveys and tests upon completion of each class, as well as cumulative tests encompassing each track.
