About the Program

Through job placement, Opportunity Center, Inc. (OCI), A ServiceSource Affiliate assists people with disabilities in obtaining and maintaining jobs in community-based settings.

This program is designed to help people prepare for, locate, and retain employment. Through counseling, coaching, instruction, and networking, OCI partners with individuals to conduct their job search as independently as possible and find stable, successful employment. Placement services are provided in New Castle, Kent and Sussex Counties and are funded primarily through the Delaware Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and the Division for Visually Impaired Vocational Rehabilitation.

Retention Support

We want to do more than help people find jobs — we want to help them launch careers. That’s why we provide ongoing retention support services to assist individuals to be successful in their jobs. A Retention Counselor will stay in close contact with both the participant and their employer, providing the participant support. We will provide additional training when needed, and when appropriate, will help an employer identify reasonable accommodations.

Supported Employment

Supported Employment provides employment and job coaching for individuals who have cognitive disabilities that make it more difficult to transfer skills they have learned elsewhere to a new job. Many individuals learn best at the job site where they will be employed, and we offer a host of supports to help make that transition successful, including:

  • Intensive job development
  • Transportation and mobility training
  • Job coaching
  • Employment advocacy
  • Follow-along services

Ticket-to-Work Program

OCI is an approved Employment Network (EN) through the Social Security Administration’s Ticket to Work Program and works to place individual ticket holders into jobs within their community.
