CINCINNATI, OHIO – REM Ohio announced today that they will be holding an open house at their Opportunities Center, located at 11530 Century Blvd, on Wednesday, October 10th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. This open house will showcase the newest innovative vocational rehabilitation program “Ready2Work.” Everyone in the community is welcome and encouraged to attend this celebration, obtain more information on services available, and sign up for training and education on the road that leads towards employment.

In addition, REM Ohio’s Ready2Work program assists adults whom may be experiencing barriers to obtaining traditional employment. This work group may be comprised of persons, such as mature workers, returning veterans, displaced workers entering new industries, or workers with various mental or physical disabilities.

The goal of the Ready2Work program is to find meaningful work that matches applicants’ interests, obtain employment, and help them live life to the fullest. Our job developers carefully match each applicant with an employer in their home community where they can make a positive contribution and pursue their career goals. After the person begins work, we often help monitor their progress on the jobsite to assure master their new responsibilities and also ensure a good fit for both the applicant and the employer.

Individuals interested in learning more about us or our Ready2Work program can contact us at 513.878.8188 or visit our website www.rem-oh.com/ready2work.
