“SAM helped me get a job. My Supports Coordinator helps me if I have a concern or a problem.”
Josh became involved with Service Access and Management shortly after the organization took over operations in Clarion County in 2009.
During his time with SAM, Josh expressed an interest in wanting to get a job. He’s had two different Supports Coordinators over the past six years who helped him obtain a job and maintain employment at two different agencies.
Josh has worked with Training Toward Self Reliance and Venango Training and Development Services and had a variety of transitional and pre-vocational jobs during his time working for the agencies.
Anytime he wanted to change a position, his SAM Supports Coordinator was there to help with the transition.
Josh said having a friendly Supports Coordinator who is there to assist him has been good for him.
“My Supports Coordinator Jordan is nice. She’s very helpful for me because she is very kind.”
