Preferred Employment & Living Supports helps employers meet their workforce needs by training people with disabilities. We specialize in matching the right workers with the right skills to the right employers.
We offer a comprehensive training and support program that includes individual and team skills training, as well as on-the-job personal skills such as problem-solving, communication, and stress management. Our program has a proven track record of helping individuals with physical and cognitive disabilities, as well as mental illness, overcome barriers in their lives and become productive, reliable members of the workforce.
Our programs also provide a considerable number of benefits to employers in Muskegon, Ottawa and other West Michigan counties. Employers that hire PELS clients can benefit from a number of incentives including:
- Job coaches that provide on-the-job training funded by the State of Michigan
- 90-day follow-along support
- Financial benefits thanks to the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC), which allows a percentage of employee compensation to be reclaimed as a rebate on corporate income tax returns.
