Adults with Developmental Disabilities (ADD) - Job PowerWork is an essential element in the lives of people with developmental disabilities. Members learn how to become "employable" at weekly meetings that take place in conjunction with Rap Sessions. With the responsibilities of employment come feelings of pride and accomplishment. The socialization and camaraderie of co-workers enhances their self-esteem while the tasks of job performance expand their physical and mental capability. Through Job Power our members share these feelings with one another, trade tips for finding employment, lend encouragement to their friends and receive guidance from a facilitator.MontgomeryAdults with Developmental Disabilities (ADD) - Montgomery; JenkintownAdults with Developmental Disabilities (ADD)

Case Management ProgramHELP's Case Managers provide guidance and assistance to individuals and families living in these area shelters: Interfaith Family Shelter, Shalom House, and the YWCA. They assist clients in obtaining an income and/or permanent or temporary housing. This system allows the shelter managers to work on other equally important goals such as child care, connection to the mental health and/or drug and alcohol recovery support systems, family unification, etc. Once placed in shelter, clients are assigned a Case Manager to work with them throughout their shelter stay. Upon completion of an intake, Case Managers are required to meet with clients within 48 hours of placement. During this initial session, Case Managers aid clients in developing an individualized goal plan designed to break down the steps involved in resolving their situations. Clients are also required to develop a ``Plan B''. Plan B, simply put is, "if all else fails what will the client do?" Each week, Case Managers monitor and measure individual progress and assist clients in assessing if and when Plan B will be needed. Furthermore, Case Managers meet with the shelter managers each week to conduct a client review and to brainstorm resources. The desired outcome resulting from all of these activities is permanent and/or temporary housing. Case Managers also work with street homeless, those who are about to become homeless, and "non-traditional shelter" residents. The Case Manager's role is to either prevent homelessness or help secure more stable housing. DauphinHELP MinistriesChristian Churches United
