Our adult clients receive the support and skills necessary for employment within the community or in our site-based work program. For example, Project Employ is a collaborative effort with St. Elizabeth Medical Center and the Kenton County School to Work Transition Program to provide evaluation, training, and ultimately employment in a medical setting. NPI also offers a Community-Based Supportive Employment Program, which offers in-depth one-on-one job placement and support in organizations throughout our community. A third program offered through Adult Services is our Site-Based Employment Program, which is located in Edgewood, KY. This program offers clients everyday assembly and packaging jobs, as well as other onsite services such as the Life Skills Program, which offers our clients the opportunity to transition away from full-time work so that they are able to set and achieve personal, recreational, and social goals.
New Perceptions believes in the abilities of our clients and believe we have achieved success only when our clients achieve success! NPI provides a lifetime of service to hundreds of Northern Kentucky families, supplying them with the confidence and tools to be able to set and reach their goals.
