Programs and Services

Helping HandsOWL offers a variety of programs and services geared toward helping people obtain and maintain long-term successful employment. We assist individuals in discovering their strengths and developing their skills to prepare for employment. We connect our individuals with employers offering jobs meeting their individual employment goals and look for the best possible match for job seekers and employers alike. Because our emphasis is on the person as a whole, we also connect those we serve to needed wrap-around services and provide support on the job, as required, to help them maintain their employment. The reasons people need support vary, but include physical disabilities, mental illness, intellectual disabilities, developmental disabilities, substance use disorders, socio-economic barriers, and those who are justice system involved.

OWL offers the following sponsored programs:

  • OWL is a Community Service Provider (CRP) of the KY Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR). We accept referrals from those deemed eligible for services by OVR. 
  • Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) Employment and Training (SNAP E&T)
  • LFCUG Workforce Development (Begins July 1 – Do not have a name for it yet)

At OWL, we know the path to success looks a little different for everyone. That’s why we offer individualized programming, one-on-one support, and a diverse range of services.
