JobConnect is a program for CareSource members that helps them to prepare for employment. The program features life coaches, who work with members for up to 24 months to help them navigate the work world, and educational resources such as free computer classes and enrollment programs.
JobConnect life coaches help members identify strengths and prioritize areas that need reinforcing, including emotional support, food stability, child care, or physical health. Once needs are identified, life coaches coordinate and connect members with community services such as food banks or transportation vouchers. After immediate needs have been met, members are connected with education or employment opportunities to help them increase skills and obtain connections to long-term employment.
