Employment Programs & Services
MRCI Placement Specialists work with more than 300 employer partners to find the right fit for the client and the employer. In 2015 and 2016, MRCI helped 824 people become employed and independent. Individuals may be hired as part of a work crew or on an individual basis.
For our individuals with more severe developmental disabilities, MRCI provides work in a center-based environment. This service has the types of support in place to help each individual find fulfilling work at a MRCI facility.
Under contract with the counties of Blue Earth and Steele, MRCI provides a variety of employment services for recipients of Minnesota's Family Investment Program (MFIP), Diversionary Work Program (DWP), and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
MRCI offers a wide variety of program options to assist individuals in finding and keeping a job in their community. At the core of these services is the desire to provide individualized services that meet the specific needs and wishes of the individual. Rather than move people through "programs", MRCI provides an array of specific service options that can be tailored to the individuals needs. Drawing on years of experience and a large base of community business partners, an individual employment plan can be established that pulls from a number of services to form a clear path to long term employment.
