Richard, another Vocational Program Success Story.

Richard was referred to our work adjustment program at Eliza Jennings Senior Care Network by the Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation. He worked closely with Cornucopia's Case Manager, Cheryl Sims, to sharpen his work skills, to improve his work speed and to try out some new kinds of jobs. After completing his work adjustment and training program there, Richard began working with Cornucopia Employment Specialist, Ariana Ranson, to find job opportunities in the community. Richard had some experience working at a library so they began their search there.
