Re: Program Services
Date: October 5, 2017
We regret to inform you that Vocational Solutions for Adults of the Lake County Educational Service Center will no longer provide day services including Vocational Habilitation, Adult Day Services, and Supported Employment and Non-Medical Transportation (NMT) to clients in Lake County. We have found that the funding model provided by the state does not financially support the operation of this program. We have worked long and hard to be creative in service delivery and programming to work within the funds that we receive. We have not found a way to do so and the Lake County Educational Service Center can no longer financially supplement this program. This change does impact the operation of The Shoppe in the City.
We will, of course, meet our obligation to provide services to you for 30 days from this date of notice. We will work closely with you and your Service and Support Administrator (SSA) for a smooth transition.
We have truly enjoyed our time with your families and our clients. We are disappointed that we are no longer able to provide these services and will miss the day to day interactions with all of you. We wish you the best.
