With CCS, you are included as an equal partner in identifying your goals and selecting the services that best fit your needs. Following are the services currently provided by ERI. Once enrolled in CCS, if you are interested in ERI services, contact your CCS service facilitator for more information.

Employment Counseling

ERI’s employment services can help to identify strengths, define job goals, and build key skills needed to get and keep a job. Our Employment Specialists actively assist by guiding the job search, exploring job opportunities, and providing supports along the way to promote successful employment outcomes.

Additionally, ERI provides Individual Placement and Support (IPS) employment services which involve a partnership between the CCS participant, the CCS Service Facilitation agency, the ERI Employment Specialist, and DVR.

Learn about work incentives, benefit program rules, and potential changes in benefits.  Get your questions answered before starting a job or when making employment changes. We also help with problem-solving and reporting wages or changes to benefit agencies.
