DISCOVERING OPPORTUNITIES...

FOR GROWTH & INNOVATION In 2015, ODC celebrated 50 years of service to the community. ODC’s success and growth as an organization over the years has been a result of our strong commitment to the people we serve, our response to new and emerging needs, and innovation in creating new opportunities. It is also because of the great partners we have that support our mission... employers, customers, donors, volunteers, employees - and of course, the people we serve, who work hard to achieve their work and life goals.

PAM ROSS ODC PRESIDENT

Much has changed for people with disabilities over the past 50 years. Prior to ODC’s existence, opportunities for people with disabilities to work and fully participate in the community were limited. All of that began to change in the 1960s, when a group of concerned citizens and parents of people with disabilities set out to create new opportunities for these members of our community.

"IN 2015, WE LAUNCHED A NEW APPROACH TO OUR SERVICES, CALLED 'COMMUNITYLIFE'..." CHECK OUT THE ENCLOSED INSERT, FOR ALL THE DETAILS.

We are proud of ODC’s history and progress as an organization... and even more proud of the achievements and progress of each individual we’ve served throughout the years. We have been privileged to contribute to the growth and success of so many people, and this success is a powerful motivator for us to continue our efforts. As we look to the future, there are so many opportunities yet to be discovered for the people we serve: opportunities to learn new skills, explore areas of interest, find meaningful employment, make new connections with people in our communities, and fully participate in all of the great things our communities have to offer. This year’s annual report, titled “Discovering Opportunities Together” features stories of personal discovery, growth, and achievement. These stories tell us that when people are given opportunity and support to take new steps in their lives, they can accomplish great things.

LYLE LANG CHAIRPERSON

In 2015, we launched a new approach to our services, called “CommunityLife”, with the goal of significantly increasing community connections and community employment opportunities for the people we serve. We look forward to all of the possibilities to further our mission through CommunityLife. We know that ODC, as an organization, will look different in the next 50 years. We fully expect that people with disabilities will be engaged in the community in many ways... as employees, volunteers, neighbors and friends. We see our vision coming to fruition: “Communities strengthened and enriched by the abilities and contributions of all members”. Our work in the next 50 years will involve the community as active participants in our mission. We will be creating more opportunities for community members with and without disabilities to “connect”, to build friendships and genuine reciprocal relationships. We look forward to “discovering opportunities together!”

THROUGH A NEW APPROACH David wants to learn to play the accordion. Dustin would like to join a civic group. Danielle wants to volunteer to teach sign language. These goals may not have anything to do with work... but work is just one component of a fulfilling life. ODC’s new CommunityConnect service, one component of CommunityLife, supports individuals in exploring “outside of work” interests and connecting to those areas of interest, and engages individuals in community career exploration and job volunteering, all with the goal of moving them toward community employment. Every activity takes place at a community location, outside the walls of ODC’s centers. According to Stacey Schultz, CommunityConnect Developer, the choice of activities is largely determined by the participants, based upon their interests. “The group is really driven by what they want to do,” said Stacey. “This is a real learning curve for some individuals because many times, others decide where they will go and what they will do.”

Job Volunteering groups visit not-for-profit organizations and experience first-hand what a particular job entails. They also have the opportunity to work on skills that need improvement. Personal Discovery utilizes the Conover Company assessment tool (see page 11) to assist individuals in further exploring their career interests. “The ultimate goal of CommunityConnect is to help individuals feel confident about moving toward community employment,” said Stacey. “But it’s also very much about getting them connected to the community and participating in ways that are meaningful to them. To feel connected... not like they’re attending something, but like they’re part of something. Many of the individuals we work with haven’t had the opportunity to do that in the course of their life. Independence and confidence grow, and it’s so empowering!” /////

In October 2015, 29 individuals became ODC’s first CommunityConnect participants. Small groups were established, and each group chose from a selection of options including the Sampler Platter, Career Exploration, Job Volunteering and Personal Discovery. The Sampler Platter focuses on exploring a variety of places and activities within the community, enhancing relationship skills, building problem-solving skills, learning how to arrange transportation and increasing independence in accessing what the community has to offer. Staff assist individuals in connecting to activities of interest, providing support to get the connection well-established, then fading as support is no longer needed. The Career Exploration groups visit area businesses and organizations to learn about jobs within the business and what those jobs entail. An educational component focuses on “job readiness”, teaching skills such as resume writing, interviewing, dress and grooming, communication and teamwork.

527

INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES WERE SERVED BY ODC IN 2015, COMPARED TO 486 IN 2014. Individuals participated in one or more services including community employment, CommunityConnect, center-based training and day services.

TO CONNECT

Tony's Discovery... Tony is part of a CommunityConnect Sampler Platter group that explored C-Note Music in Wisconsin Rapids. “Most of the individuals in this group never had the opportunity to participate in a band in school,” said Stacey Schultz, ODC’s CommunityConnect Developer. “They’ve expressed an interest in music but they don’t know what they’d like to play. We wanted them to see the instruments... to hold them, to play them.” Tony, it turns out, really has “rhythm”, and drums are right up his alley. He may decide to take lessons, which CommunityConnect staff would support him in until he feels comfortable with scheduling those lessons, arranging for transportation and interacting with the instructor and others who might be in his class. “Once Tony has learned the skills and made the connections that allow him to take lessons without our assistance, our staff will fade," said Stacey. "But we’ll be there as long as he needs our support.”

Danielle's Discovery... Danielle is deaf, and she wants everyone to know sign language. Until that time, Danielle has joined a CommunityConnect Sampler Platter group and is learning to use technology that can assist her in better communicating with the world. Within her group, Danielle is learning to use Dragon Dictation, a voice recognition software that turns voice into text, so that everything said in her group comes up as text on a screen. She is also learning to schedule her own cab transportation using an online service which allows her to see another person on her computer screen, sign to them and get a message through to the cab company. Still, Danielle really feels the need to help more individuals become proficient in sign language. Another of ODC’s CommunityConnect groups does volunteer work at Mead Elementary School in Wisconsin Rapids, so staff reached out to see if teachers there might be interested in having Danielle begin to teach sign language to the students during their after school program. They were very interested and excited – as is Danielle, who is going to get one step closer to her dream!

DANIELLE MARK

Mark's Discovery... From the very first day with his CommunityConnect Career Exploration group, Mark knew exactly what he wanted – to work in an executive office. So when his group began volunteering at the Family Center in Wisconsin Rapids, Mark was given the role of greeter at the agency’s front desk. But along with that job came another – Family Center staff wanted the front desk volunteer to do some computer work. So CommunityConnect staff connected Mark with the Tech Tuesdays program at McMillan Memorial Library in Wisconsin Rapids. Through that program, high school volunteers teach individuals basic computer skills. Mark continues his computer training, and he continues to join his CommunityConnect group at the Family Center once per month. His next goal? Volunteering at the Family Center without his group, and having the skills needed to assist that agency with their data entry needs. Stuart's Discovery... Stuart is just starting to “spread his wings”. In 2015, he was hired by Weiler Convenience Store – his first community job - and he was among the first individuals to sign up for the new CommunityConnect Sampler Platter. Stu has never known much about his family history, and most of his family have now passed away. CommunityConnect staff assisted Stu in searching for genealogy resources, and found that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Marshfield has a Family History Center that is open to the public. The center was welcoming of Stu and eager to help him do his research. On his very first visit, he was able to find a photo of his great grandfather; Stuart looked at the photo and said, “He’s the spitting image of me, don’t you think?” CommunityConnect staff were there for as long as Stu needed them – which turned out to be only one visit. Since then, he has been visiting by himself each week, supported by Family History Center volunteers who continue to help him with his search. Stu’s other goals: to go on an archeological dig, and to drive a train. Who knows… with Stuart, anything’s possible! /////

DISCOVERING OPPORTUNITIES...

TO ACHIEVE Jordan wants to be a star. Like many young men, Jordan always wanted to be a football player. But he’s a realist, and knows that very few ever achieve that goal. So he’s exploring his career options with the help of Project SEARCH, an employment training program for young adults with disabilities. Jordan is one of 12 individuals enrolled in the Project SEARCH program in Wisconsin Rapids, which began its first year in 2015. ODC was awarded the program in 2014, and with partners Aspirus Riverview Hospital and Clinics, the Wisconsin Rapids School District, Community Care Connections of Wisconsin (CCCW) and the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR), was ready to take on its first class for the 2015-2016 school year. Jordan and the other participants are spending their last year of high school at Aspirus Riverview Hospital, the host location for the Wisconsin Rapids program. They spend their days studying curriculum that focuses on work and independent life readiness, and rotating through three different internships within the hospital setting. The coursework is taught by Stefanie Tryba, the Wisconsin Rapids School District instructor dedicated to Project SEARCH.

“BECAUSE OF THIS PROGRAM, I’M SEEING THESE YOUNG ADULTS BECOME MORE INDEPENDENT...”

“Our interns learn work etiquette - what’s appropriate and what’s not in the workplace setting,” said Stefanie. “We also talk about why work is important, and about our role in the community – what it means to be a citizen.” Stefanie also works alongside ODC job coaches to support participants as they perform their internships in various hospital

departments. ODC job coaches provide interns with training and support throughout their rotations, help them prepare for the job search and interview process and assist them in finding and keeping a job after graduation. “Because of this program, I’m seeing these young adults become more independent,” said Stefanie. “Their confidence is really growing and they’re starting to problemsolve on their own. Just a few months ago, they relied much more on their job coaches... now, they really want to do things on their own. They say, ‘Teach me, then leave me to do my job. I can handle this.’” Stefanie has seen this surge in independence create a kind of “learning curve” for the parents of Project SEARCH participants, something that is all too familiar to Jordan’s mom, Maggie. “When you have a special needs kid, you have to do more for them than you do your other children,” said Maggie. “Then when you start giving them space, it’s scary at first. As a parent, you have to go through a little transition. Jordan doesn’t need me as much, and that’s okay.” By the end of the school year, Jordan will have finished three internship rotations; his first two were in the hospital’s laboratory and outpatient rehabilitation departments. The third will be hosted in another of a crosssection of clinical and clerical environments. “I decided to join Project SEARCH because

JORDAN ABOVE: Jordan and his mother have both spoken as ambassadors of Project SEARCH at an informational meeting for interested individuals and their families. Jordan has also shared his message with a local civic organization.

I wanted a challenge and wanted to learn work skills,” said Jordan. “It’s fun to have new challenges... if you fail, you learn from your failure and pick yourself back up.” “Before Project SEARCH,” said Maggie, “I was thinking about Jordan’s future a lot, because he was progressing through school... I wondered, ‘What’s going to happen to him next?’ This program specializes in helping young adults with disabilities train for a job, and helps them find a job that they will really enjoy.”

“I have seen him grow as an individual,” said Maggie. “Now he is an adult and can have his own job and his own life. This is not something that mom is doing for him.” “I’m just thankful that there is a program like this,” she said. “It’s awesome! Project SEARCH is teaching both of us that he can do it - and he wants to! He’s seeing that there are more possibilities in his life.”

MATT

“At home, when he compares himself with his siblings, he sees all the things he can’t do,” said Maggie. “When he’s in Project SEARCH, he sees all the things that he can do.” Come to think of it... Jordan already is a star! About Project SEARCH Project SEARCH is an internationally recognized model of employment training for young adults with disabilities. The program was developed in 1996 by Nurse J. Erin Riehle, then the director of the emergency department at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC). As the flagship program, CCHMC provides technical assistance for replication and overall leadership to Project SEARCH worldwide. /////

PREVIOUS MARSHFIELD PROJECT SEARCH GRADUATES ARE SUCCESSFULLY EMPLOYED IN THEIR COMMUNITIES.

CHRISTINA TOP: Through his participation in Marshfield Project SEARCH, Matt had the opportunity to "try out" a variety of jobs during his three internships at Ministry Saint Joseph's Hospital, the Marshfield Project SEARCH host site. Since 2011, ODC has partnered with Ministry Saint Joseph's Hospital, the Marshfield School District, DVR and CCCW on the Project SEARCH program in Marshfield. With the support of ODC job coaches, Matt developed his work skills, improved his focus and stamina, and increased his confidence. When he graduated from the program in 2014, Matt was ready to take on a new employment challenge... he is now a dependable and dedicated employee at Nasonville Dairy in Marshfield! 2015 ANNUAL REPORT - DISCOVERING OPPORTUNITIES...

BOTTOM: When Christina joined the Marshfield Project SEARCH program in 2014, she was unsure of where her career interests lie. She knew that she liked being with children, so internships were created for her at Bright Horizons Daycare and ABC Daycare in Marshfield. During her year in the program, she also earned her Child Care Certification and had the opportunity to develop and hone her work skills. She loved interacting with the children, and her abilities and passion were so evident that even before her graduation, she was hired as a child care worker at ABC Daycare! She has been successfully employed at the center for almost a year.

FOR WORK

Sara Schueller met Linda back in 1992, when Sara accepted a position at Norwood Health Center in Marshfield. Linda was living at Norwood, an institution that provided short-term emergency mental health care and long-term care for people with developmental disabilities. She had resided there since the early 1970s. Linda spent most of her adult life living in an institution. For a long period of time, Linda was never exposed to employment opportunities. So Sara, now ODC Services Manager, remembers very clearly the first time Linda ever went to work. “The minute she experienced work, she never wanted anything else,” said Sara. Sara explains that, beginning in 1993, Norwood staff provided transportation to ODC in Wisconsin Rapids for residents whom they thought would benefit from work. Linda is non-verbal and, at the time, struggled with unpredictable behaviors – according to Sara, people would say, ‘what can she do, anyway?’. But the staff driver had a great rapport with Linda, and was confident that she would do well in a work setting if given the opportunity. “When she was given the chance to work, that was it,” said Sara. “She always took pride in having something that she’d earned – her paycheck. You would literally hear her shouting from the time she got back to Norwood until she got to her room... you knew Linda was back and that it must have been payday at ODC.” Because of the passion and persistence of many who supported the rights of individuals with disabilities to live and work as independently as possible, there have been tremendous increases in opportunities over the last 25 years. Linda no longer lives in an institution, but now

resides in a group home with roommates that she enjoys. She works at ODC in Marshfield – except on Thursdays, that is, when she dresses for work and takes a cab to her first community job at Mid-State Technical College’s Marshfield campus. Linda is supported at Mid-State by ODC job coach Judy Uhlig, who beams when she talks about Linda’s journey. “Linda has made a real success of her new job,” said Judy. “She’s adapted the skills she learned at ODC to a new work environment, and expanded those skills to work more and more independently. She has also been working hard to learn and apply her “soft skills” at work, such as how to meet and greet co-workers and observe proper office etiquette.” According to Judy, Linda loves people, so it didn’t take long for her to form an especially close friendship with co-worker Kris Saindon, Office Assistant at Mid-State. “Before the start of Linda’s work day,” said Judy, “Kris meets her at the door to share a special ‘hello’. When Linda has completed her shift, Kris is there to say ‘goodbye’ and thank her for her hard work. This is an especially enriching relationship for both of them, one that Linda is proud and eager to talk about with anyone she can!” “It’s wonderful how ODC is helping individuals to get out into the community and working,” said Kris. “I can see how excited and happy Linda is to be able to do this. It’s rewarding for me just to work with her. It makes me feel so good to know that we’re able to help her thrive.” “Linda is proof that if you find the right job match, anything is possible,” said Sara. “Her barriers may be viewed as significant to the outside observer but once you get to know her, you see Linda for who she really is – a hardworking, determined woman who continues to grow and mature through her work.” /////

LEFT: Linda (right) has developed a close relationship with Mid-State Technical College co-worker Kris Saindon (left). “Linda’s really come a long way in learning to interact with her coworkers,” said Kris. “But there has never been an issue with her work. She comes in and she does it!” 8

2015 was Heather’s time to shine... and ODC’s Convenience Store Certificate of Competency Program helped to get her started. The certificate of competency program, developed and implemented in 2014, is a partnership that includes ODC, Weiler Convenience Stores, Mid-State Technical College in Marshfield, the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) and Community Care Connections of Wisconsin (CCCW). ODC and Weiler Stores worked with Mid-State to develop a curriculum that includes the essential functions of a service industry position like stocking, managing inventory and customer service. Using this curriculum, ODC staff provide on-site education and training at a Weiler store. Upon completion of the training, individuals are tested on all components of the training and a Mid-State instructor will “sign off” on the Certificate of Competency.

EMPLOYERS PARTNERED WITH ODC’S COMMUNITY EMPLOYMENT TEAM TO DEVELOP COMMUNITY JOBS, WORK EXPERIENCES & TEMPORARY EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES IN 2015.

Seven individuals, including Heather, have graduated from the program and received their certificate. Two of these individuals have secured jobs in the retail field, and two others, including Heather, have been offered service industry positions. Heather will now begin a new journey in her life as a proud employee of a Baltus Company Convenience Store. In Heather’s Own Words… “I went to the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) because I had tried working before and it didn’t go so well. I got to choose anyone I wanted to work with on my job skills, and I saw ODC on the list! I’m an athlete in Special Olympics and a lot of my friends work there. When I saw the list, I knew that I had to choose ODC! ODC offered to get me involved in the Weiler store program, to help me get a Certificate of Competency. Because of that experience, I realized that I’m really good at cleaning and reorganizing. I find that when I’m stressed or anxious or when my anxiety is high, I’ll be rearranging or doing projects… I actually found out what I was good at because of my stress! ODC has been a really good support for me. I feel comfortable addressing what my feelings are and what I need to work on. I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with ODC. I think we all need to find something that we love doing. The biggest step is reaching out and looking for what you love. Once you find it, you’re never going to regret that decision.

ABOVE: Heather had a great first day at The Baltus Company Convenience Store in Marshfield, a job she trained for through ODC’s Convenience Store Certificate of Competency Program. “I’ve had a lot of good supports and a lot of positive role models,” said Heather.

A lot of people think people with disabilities aren’t worth the time – they say, ‘How could people with disabilities ever help anyone out?’ Everyone has their own special gift. You will never know until you give them a try. They could really surprise you, and a lot of times they do. It will never happen if you don’t take that opportunity. It’s really worth it to hire someone with a disability – you open up a ‘zillion’ doors for that person and for your business. I’ve heard a lot of people say, ‘You are wise beyond your years’, and my immediate response is, ‘I’m only as wise as my teachers.’” /////

DISCOVERING OPPORTUNITIES...

FOR EXPLORATION Anna has worked at ODC’s center for, according to her, “four years and 10 months”. But in 2015, she joined a group of individuals that are working with a new service called Prevocational Accelerated Career Enhancement, or PACE, designed to help individuals move toward their goal of community employment. Is she ready? Said Anna, “It’s exciting and kind of scary at the same time.” That reaction is a common one for individuals who have worked exclusively in one of ODC’s centers. And it is exactly what PACE was designed to address: fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of not being accepted for who you are and what you have to offer. PACE utilizes an online assessment tool created by the Conover Company that was designed to help individuals with disabilities transition into community employment. The assessment begins with the Interest Indicator, a tool that explores each individual’s career interests. Like all of the Conover assessment tools, it is completed on a laptop or tablet by individuals working at their own pace. Because it was designed for people with disabilities, it contains an audio option for those with limited reading skills and can be used with assistive technology devices such as touch screens. Once individuals have explored their interests and identified potential career options, they utilize the Learning Assessment Program, which demonstrates how math, communication and problem-solving skills relate to the actual demands of a particular career field. “This program really shows participants the most important skills they’ll need to go into many types of jobs,” said Tama Drexler, ODC Job Facilitator and PACE Instructor. “It gives them a realistic outlook on what the jobs entail.” The next steps include a Career Planner, which helps participants explore the job market and different opportunities within their field

of interest, and Work Samples, during which participants are evaluated by the instructor as they perform some of the tasks necessary for success in the field. The goal of the program, according to Tama, is to give participants and the ODC staff who support their training and job search activities a clear path to follow, streamlining the transition to community employment.

INDIVIDUALS WHO WORK IN ODC’S CENTER-BASED PROGRAM GOT THEIR FIRST JOB IN THE COMMUNITY IN 2015!

“PACE helps them set goals that are realistic,” said Tama. “We know what their interests are, and where their strengths and areas for improvement lie. We can now partner more effectively with them to find the right job match.” “Our hope is that PACE will help individuals in center-based programming gain confidence and overcome their fears about community employment,” said Sara Schueller, ODC Services Manager. “Just as important, it will give our community employment teams more direction in assisting with the job search. It’s not going to be a guessing game; now, both our participants and staff will have very concrete information that will help guide their career planning.” Anna agrees. “I don’t know what I’ll be good at,” she said, “but this is helping me to figure that out.” /////
