New Partnership with the Veterans Administration in East Orange, NJ
Opportunity Project is proud to announce their new partnership with the Veterans Administration in East Orange, NJ (VA New Jersey Health Care System). As part of this new partnership, Opportunity project has committed to provide vocational services to veterans who have sustained a brain injury.
The Opportunity Project Vocational Program provides Work Evaluation, Work Adjustment Training and Supported Employment programs. Through the vocational program, individuals with brain injury are provided with the necessary support, tools, and guidance to obtain and maintain competitive employment. Both group and individual sessions and workshops are provided on a variety of topics such as resume writing, work ethics, behavior, interviewing skills and interpersonal skills.
Opportunity Project has been at the forefront of community integration for individuals with brain injury since it opened its doors in 1996. With the addition of the vocational services program in 2001, Opportunity Project continues to be the only free-standing independent Clubhouse in New Jersey. The Opportunity Project Clubhouse Program fills the critical gap in the rehabilitation process for people with brain injuries, and is a national model for other community-based services for persons with brain injury. The mission of Opportunity Project is to empower persons with brain injuries to achieve self-esteem, self-determination, personal growth, independence and the attainment of their full potential.
