Program 1

Subcontracting Services

JobOne provides employment and employment related services to about 180 adults with disabilities through contracts with private industry at its Subcontracting Services locations in Grandview and Independence. Services offered include packaging, sorting, and assembly. Employees participate in an individualized, semi-annual planning process in which they have the opportunity to voice their opinions about job settings and to set goals. This may include moving to more integrated, challenging settings. New employees often are hired initially into Subcontracting Services, where they develop social, vocational, and personal skills. JobOne then makes every effort to transition them into environments that require more independence and more challenging work, such as that offered through AbilityOne, Secure Document Solutions, JobOne Recycling Services, and other community-based employment. In expanding these services, JobOne will be able to accommodate more highly skilled workers in community-based jobs and to hire more of the nearly 100 people on JobOne's waiting list for employment.

Program 4

AbilityOne

Through the AbilityOne program, about 30 adults with significant disabilities perform work through federal government contracts - including custodial, clerical, and mailroom operations - at area federal government buildings and through community-based jobs. AbilityOne has achieved tremendous success and works continuously to expand the program through new contract acquisition. In advertising for contract bids, customers make decisions based on business; JobOne's AbilityOne contracts are not modified because they are carried out by adults with significant disabilities. AbilityOne contracts are profitable and provide resources that help provide services to other JobOne employees and programs.

JobOne Careers

JobOne Careers is a non-profit subsidiary of JobOne. Careers began providing customized employment services in February 2014. Our mission is to provide employment services for individuals with disabilities. Our vision is that all individuals with disabilities will find meaningful and sustainable employment that matches their skills, interests, and aspirations. Our philosophy is that JobOne Careers provides an individualized, timely, and systematic process by which a person seeking employment, in partnership with staff, learns to identify vocational options and practices in the development of employment skills, goals, and objectives. In keeping with this philosophy, our programs are offered as a community-based service. Our goal is to provide assessment, development, placement, and training assistance using a variety of techniques in the community in which an individual lives. The techniques or tools utilized will depend on the needs of the person served, therefore will rarely be the same for any two individuals. Customization of services and the use of Discovery for all individuals will play a critical role in their ultimate success.

Funding Needs

Due to the entrepreneurial spirit and nature of our business, JobOne requires a business investment fund of $250,000 to be used at board discretion to fund growth of programs and new initiatives. For example, Secure Document Solutions would benefit from the purchase of a mobile shred truck that could be partially funded by the business investment fund.JobOne will require roughly $400,000 to renovate the Grandview Workshop facility as part of the overall facility plan to move the recycling center to this location. This would not only provide a much larger space for our growing recycling program, but would also save tens of thousands of dollars each month in the market based lease that we currently pay to house the program.Employee Fund - the board and staff of JobOne would like to maintain a $25,000 fund to be used to support employees. Examples include funding Holiday parties, uniforms and clothing, special adaptive equipment, and recognitions/prizes for employees.

Mr. Aaron Martin

BIO

His belief that people's strengths should never be underestimated pushes him to work as a strong advocate for JobOne's mission.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"Not many organizations can claim being brand new while having over 75 years of history. JobOne was formed in the summer of 2011 when IBS Industries and Foundation Workshop Inc. merged, bringing together two of Jackson County's oldest and most respected vocational services agencies for people with disabilities. Both agencies had been leaders in Jackson County in providing innovative services. Both agencies were welcoming of change and new ideas. The boards and leadership staff of both agencies understood the current economic, service model, and funding climate of agencies that provide vocational services. They understood that the industry was changing rapidly and that larger, more diversified agencies would have a much better chance of thriving in the future.The Board and senior staff are developing a well-articulated action plan to guide the agency to new efficiencies and growth in improved services, new businesses, innovative marketing, new facilities, fund-development opportunities, and improved financial health. To meet the demands of many employees to work in a more integrated setting, JobOne must create new programs. Underlying this is the critical need for all JobOne programs to create budget surpluses.In addition to the business services that employ people and generate agency revenue, two government funders provide about 30 percent of JobOne revenues. Developmental Disability Services of Jackson County—eitas has funded JobOne for more than 30 years through funds from a property tax levy assessed on Jackson County property owners. The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education funds sheltered workshops and enclave employment, such as jobs at SDS and JobOne Recycling, on a per-diem basis. The funding has not kept up with inflation, and four- to six-week funding shortfalls are the rule. Subcontracting and sub-assembly work, which has been the hallmark of traditional employment programs for people with disabilities, is disappearing from the US economy. JobOne has responded by creating JobOne Recycling and Secure Document Solutions. JobOne is developing plans for new business ventures while continuing to seek contract work for employment center employees. JobOne surveys reveal high levels of competency and satisfaction among staff members and employees with disabilities and high stakeholder participation. JobOne has been commended by funders for its ingenuity, dedication, and results. JobOne is surpassing its strategic goals in its pursuit to maximize human potential.Aaron MartinCEO"
