7TH & Madison Prevocational Training Program 


7TH & Madison home and community based services are designed to assist members enrolled in the Supports Program and Community Care  Program to receive supportive services either in their own home or in the community. 

Fundamental to services is a person-centered and customized-focused provision of care. 7TH & Madison’s Virtual/ Community’s prevocational program is a creative, successful program where individuals develop skills that prepare our members for paid or unpaid employment. Gaining work-related experience is considered crucial for job placement and career development.

Program Participants receive training and work experience that contributes to the development of job-related skills and employability. Members are taught concepts such as: work compliance, attendance, task completion, problem solving, and safety, and, if applicable, how to identify obstacles to employment, obtain paperwork necessary for employment applications, and how to interact and socialize with others in the workplace. Members are provided scheduled activities outside of an individual’s home that support acquisition, retention, or improvement in job-related skills related to self-care, sensory-motor development, communication and socialization, daily living skills, and community living. This could include opening and maintaining a bank account for work-related direct deposit.

Every member receives a comprehensive evaluation, a patient-centered individualized plan of care with self-stated goals, and a program of therapies unique to their treatment needs.
