Career and Recovery Resources, Inc. empowers job seekers, who often have the greatest barriers to employment, through preparation for, attainment, and sustainment of employment.  Out participants are provided a hand up rather than a hand out - building on their strengths and helping to reduce or eliminate any barrier to employment.  Case Managers provide intensive support services and work with participants to develop customized employment and housing stability plans.
