AFC has been approved by the Department of Developmental Disabilities, State of Ohio, to bring these exciting new services to our current clients who are on the Level 1, Individual Options or the SELF waiver and who reside in Franklin, Delaware, or Fairfield County.  It is Called Career Planning and Support.

According to the new OJFS statute just released in April of 2017, Career Planning and Support is “individualized, person-centered comprehensive employment planning and support that focuses on assisting an individual to identify a career direction, get them on a path to employment, and follow-up with observation and support once they are employed”.
