Component I : Recruitment Drop-in- Center
The A.M.I.G.O.S. Drop-in Center offers 100+ adults social, recreational, supportive education, consumer self-help, networking and peer support activities as well as referral services.
Our objective is to develop the motivation to work and to also instill the basic skill sets and mental stability to function in a normalized work environment. The Live, Learn, Work (Supportive Employment Continuum) consists of four components.
Component II : Entry Level Employment
Entry Level Employment offers introduction to work skills development, interpersonal skills and paid vocational training in a least restrictive, psycho-sensitive, normalized, low pressure environment.
The Affirmative Enterprises offers a variety of supported employment opportunities within the Jeff Industries Tropical Sun agency owned businesses, (i.e. sign making, wood working, embroidery, food service, graphic design and direct to garment print service).
Component III : Affirmative Enterprises Employment
This component provides a paid work experience in a normalized environment while earning minimum wage. Participants work on improving problems and barriers which have been preventing them from securing and maintaining employment under the supervision of a Job Coach.
Component IV : Community Based Job Placement
This component offers participants the opportunity to secure and maintain community-based employment in an integrated work setting. A Job Coach/ Placement Specialist will assist each individual in preparing for interviews, obtaining employment, and will regularly follow-up to ensure the success of the placement.
In the event a placement is unsuccessful, a "safety net" is in place to allow the participant the option of transition into an alternative component.
