Stabilization Program

Timeline: 4-weeks to graduate, repeatable as needed

Basic stability is important for success in our programs. Our stabilization program was created specifically for this purpose. The stabilization program is one of several entry points into Project Place and is essential for many people before they begin job training. The program is for those who desire change, but are not quite prepared for or ready for Work Ready. Covered topics include:

  • Recovery and mental health support. Through Project Place and our close partner agencies, we assess each individuals specific needs. Then, we work together to develop a plan and get started on it. The first step is beginning to overcome barriers that may have affected past success.
  • One-on-one case management sessions. The goal of the program is to help individuals develop a network of support and confidence. For this goal, each person is assigned a case manager. Case managers meet weekly with clients, one-on-one. They are there to help, guide and support success for each person.
  • Group counseling and skill development. Group meetings are held weekly with fellow students. This is an opportunity to share experiences and give and receive support. It can also help people to find their own voice. More than anything it is a way to practice healthy relationship skills.
  • Structured guidance for personal and employment goals. The stabilization team wants to help with more than just finding a job. We are working to help you grow both in your personal and professional lives. stabilization is a stepping stone to give you more time to think about what you want to do and what you want. In later programming, you will be able to narrow down career path and focus on specific goals.
  • A welcoming and supportive community. We are accepting of all differences, backgrounds and personal experiences. We want everyone to feel respected and safe at Project Place.
