Support & Services
Our Place located in Honesdale and Our Place Too located in Pike County offer the opportunity for challenged individuals to get together with peers and learn skills that can lead to an improved quality of life.
There are fully furnished kitchens and dining areas as well as indoor and outdoor recreational areas.
A typical day may include discussing current events over morning coffee, computer time, arts and crafts or cooking.
Outings to parks, farms, movie theaters or shopping are often on their calendar of activities.
Vocational and Community Options (Voc-Op) a component of our Adult Training Facility (ATF) provides classroom training along with volunteer experiences at various organizations.
Classroom time includes not only math and reading, but also computer skills and exploring various job interests. Volunteering offers participants new experiences, opportunity to meet new people, explore new hobbies or jobs all while reaping the benefits of “giving back” to their community.
Voc-Op works closely with the CIE program in obtaining employment for participants who are preparing to or are actively job seeking.
Community Integrated Employment & Transition Services
The focus here is to develop the skills and abilities of every employee to reach their greatest potential.
All employees receive real pay for their work because they are working at real jobs.
Their work experiences such as assembly operations and packaging, collating and document shredding are combined with job training and vocational counseling.
Our exceptionally talented employees have helped transform the facilities from, a place of employment for "special" people to simply, a special place of employment for people.

The Community Integrated Employment (CIE) program helps individuals find, secure and maintain employment in the community. They do this by matching a job seeker with a job, assisting in the application and interview process and providing one on one job coaching once a job is attained. Job coaches provide “follow-up” with employers and employees to insure job satisfaction is maintained by both. It is a win win situation.
School to Employment: Beginning at age 14 this program works hand in hand with local school districts, providing students a smooth transition to life after graduation. Assistance may vary with each student.
All programs are designed to assist students in transitioning to life beyond high school.
Each student will explore job interests and develop skills necessary to obtain and maintain employment.
Students will learn the value of communication, teamwork, problem solving and time management.
Upon graduation from high school, students may continue to receive support through HRC’s Community Employment Program.
