In 2010, Talbot House began placing a greater emphasis on job skills training and placement for our clients. Our transitional programs had always taught clients new job skills, and worked to secure employment. But something more was needed to give clients the extra edge in the marketplace, a program that would exclusively focus on helping clients prepare for and obtain employment.
In 2011 Talbot House became a State of Florida approved OJT (on the job training) Facility and a contractor of employment services for the State of Florida, Department of Education/Division of Vocational Rehabilitation. THE Solution helps to find employment for clients referred to us by the Department of Education/Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, as well as clients in Talbot House programs. Through THE Solution we can help people obtain and maintain stable employment, helping stop homelessness and poverty before it starts.
