JCCOA Jefferson Center
The JCCOA Jefferson Center opened its doors on April 1, 2010 to provide day habilitation, pre-vocational, and supported employment services to adults diagnosed with disabilities. The center is currently providing services to 24 individuals with a ratio of 1 instructor to 1-6 consumers.
The center is open Monday-Friday from 9am-3pm and provides a very active training schedule. Individuals are learning functional academics, health, safety, communication, social, and job readiness skills. Individuals are also learning how to access their community resources by going to the local library, participating in dances and other activities at the Senior Center and buying their lunches in the community.
Community activities are also brought into the center such as line dancing instructors, service dog visits, and community volunteers who provide craft classes. The center has also started a Special Olympics group and has taken on contract work, such as bulk mailing for the Circuit Clerk, promotional brochures for the Bloomery Distillery Plantation, shredding for Jefferson County Parks and Recreation and water bottle design and labeling for Circuit Clerk Laura Storm.
