Human Services

For some, the prospect of finding employment is far less daunting than surmounting the obstacles to their success.

How do you interview for a quality position if you don’t have decent clothes? How can you commit to a job that’s a distance away when you don’t have a vehicle? How can you even think about working an eight-hour day when you don’t have child care?

Add to those concerns the unique, individual circumstances of persons with disabilities, and the pursuit of a career can become a particularly frustrating experience.

Luckily, we live in an area where there are scores of agencies to provide assistance and opportunity. (You will find the One Stop Career Centers to be an excellent referral resource for many of these agencies.)

Opportunities for Otsego, Delaware Opportunities, Opportunities for Chenango, The Schoharie County Community Action Program, Catholic Charities, The Salvation Army, Family Services, the United Way and on and on… The network of support resources seems to grow with every new arrival to the area.

Quality of life can be measured in many ways. For those who have gained meaningful employment through the assistance of strangers – now friends – the quality of living in these four counties is immeasurable.
