Workforce Collaboration Program
Workforce Collaboration is a partnership between Easterseals and RepuCare to provide education, employment support and opportunities, and resources to individuals aged 18-64 enrolled in Anthem’s Hoosier Care Connect plan.
Easterseals will educate members on available employment programs and assess their job skills to determine the level of support needed to be employed.
Easterseals will provide pre-employment readiness options to individuals who need additional support and provide employment support to individuals seeking employment.
Extended services are work-related supports that help individuals succeed after they have obtained community employment. Services may include job-specific safety training; training to increase workplace inclusion; training on public transportation; coaching on job-related tasks; facilitation of driver’s education training; and other services to reinforce and stabilize the job placement.
Workplace Assistance provides personal care services and supports during supported employment hours to ensure the health and safety of the individual, therefore helping them retain employment. Examples of workplace assistance include help with meals, hygiene and medication administration.
