LICENSED EMPLOYMENT SERVICES
As an employment-first organization, MRCI is committed to providing services to help individuals to be successful in their careers. Employment Exploration, Employment Development and Employment Support services are the three employment services within our menu of services available for individuals on their journey to obtaining and sustaining, competitive, integrated employment in the community.
When appropriate, the one-on-one attention and/or more focused services can allow for services to be specialized to an individual’s needs, goals and current skillset.
