Employment

Your child might be able to earn an income through employment services, though it is unlikely that he or she would be able to support him or herself through employment alone. Here are some examples of agencies that provide job-coaching support:

  • MRC Industries, 269-343-0747, 2538 S. 26th St., Kalamazoo. mrcindustries.org.
  • Some individuals have started their own microenterprise, e.g., vending machine business. The self-determination staff can help guide a person in how to set up a business.
  • Goodwill Industries
  • InterAct of Michigan

I hope that this information has been helpful. Please feel free to contact me with questions. I congratulate you for helping to plan a positive and healthy future for and with your child.
