Job Placement

CPRF is taking extra precaution during this time to ensure the health and safety of our staff and those we serve. Visitors to any CPRF building will be asked a series of screening questions and have their temperature taken before being escorted by a staff member to their designated meeting room. Please wear a face mask when visiting any CPRF building. Staff members are also screened, including temperature readings, upon arriving to work. Staff members will be wearing masks when meeting with clients. All meeting spaces are thoroughly sanitized after each use. Visitors and staff are expected to maintain social distance, as they are able. We thank you for accommodating these added measures.

There is more to disability employment than just the social rate of return: it’s about giving people the opportunity to prove themselves and to gain independence.

The CPRF Job Placement Department guides people with all types of disabilities (and others with vocational barriers) to the right position –offering job readiness, work experiences, placement, retention services, and more.
