Background Statement
History
Foundation Workshop, Inc. (FWI), and Independence and Blue Springs Industries, Inc. (IBS) merged in July 2011 to create JobOne. Both organizations were founded to support adults with developmental disabilities who, once they finished school, had limited employment opportunities. During most of the IBS and FWI histories, sheltered employment (completing contract work in the areas of packaging and assembly) was the most common type of service.

FWI was founded in 1975 by the Greater Kansas City Foundation, beginning with one full-time staff member and 25 employees in a small office on 39th Street in Kansas City, Missouri. 

IBS was incorporated in 1967. In 1969, the organization opened its doors in Independence as the Jackson County Sheltered Workshop, employing adults with disabilities.
 
By merging key assets and resources—and over 75 years combined experience—and by continuing an established entrepreneurial spirit, the new JobOne has created increased opportunities for adults with disabilities to gain employment and to advance to jobs better suited to their abilities. The new JobOne operates three Subcontracting Services locations, Secure Document Solutions, JobOne Recycling Services, and multiple AbilityOne sites.
 
 
Organization Description
JobOne exists to serve the vocational needs of adults who have a strong desire to work, learn, and grow—and who happen to have developmental disabilities—and to serve the needs of the business community. JobOne provides simple to complex product assembly; document destruction, recycling and other services for clients throughout Kansas City.

JobOne provides employment and training for approximately 250 adults with disabilities. It is the largest employer of individuals with disabilities in Jackson County and one of the largest in the state of Missouri.
 
JobOne assists employees with all aspects of career and employment planning, coordination, and development, including school-to-work transition services, occupational therapy, employment options, and employee performance review and evaluation. Employee services coordinators find the best job fit for each individual based on vocational interests and relevant skill sets and place special emphasis on assisting employees in reaching their vocational potential and level of career independence.  At JobOne, employees earn paychecks through jobs matched to their needs, desires, and goals. 
Impact Statement
Fiscal Year 2016 Accomplishments:
  1. Continued growth of JobOne Careers.  Over 70 people served in community based employment.
  2. Engagement of a fund development professional.  
  3. Merger of the Independence and Blue Springs workshops.

 

Fiscal Year 2017 Goals:
  1. Continued growth and expansion of JobOne Careers.
  2. Completion of a comprehensive marketing plan with the goal to increase community awareness and customers for our competitive business lines.
  3. Doubling of philanthropic support. 
Needs Statement

 

  1. Due to the entrepreneurial spirit and nature of our business, JobOne requires a business investment fund of $250,000 to be used at board discretion to fund growth of programs and new initiatives.  For example, Secure Document Solutions would benefit from the purchase of a mobile shred truck that could be partially funded by the business investment fund.
  2. JobOne will require roughly $400,000 to renovate the Grandview Workshop facility as part of the overall facility plan to move the recycling center to this location.  This would not only provide a much larger space for our growing recycling program, but would also save tens of thousands of dollars each month in the market based lease that we currently pay to house the program.
  3. Employee Fund - the board and staff of JobOne would like to maintain a $25,000 fund to be used to support employees.  Examples include funding Holiday parties, uniforms and clothing, special adaptive equipment, and recognitions/prizes for employees. 
  4. $15,000 in IT hardware and software to improve efficiency and communication.
  5.  $17,000 for a new phone system to better link all JobOne employment locations.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement
JobOne has its share of challenges such as funding, governmental regulations, and balancing individual services and maintaining a profit center.  JobOne succeeds in identifying these challenges by continuing to evolve and follow our mission.  We take great responsibility and pride knowing that responding to changes will be challenging.  However, our persistence has shown in our success.
 
Throughout my life, I am lucky to be surrounded by family, friends, and organizations that help and support individuals with developmental disabilities.  These relationships and mentors continue to fuel my passion.  JobOne provides an outlet to continue helping and serving individuals with developmental disabilities in out of the box ways and forward thinking making JobOne the perfect fit for me.

Programs
Description
JobOne provides employment and employment related services to about 180 adults with disabilities through contracts with private industry at its Subcontracting Services locations in Grandview and Independence.  Services offered include packaging, sorting, and assembly.  Employees participate in an individualized, semi-annual planning process in which they have the opportunity to voice their opinions about job settings and to set goals.  This may include moving to more integrated, challenging settings.
 
New employees often are hired initially into Subcontracting Services, where they develop social, vocational, and personal skills.  JobOne then makes every effort to transition them into environments that require more independence and more challenging work, such as that offered through AbilityOne, Secure Document Solutions, JobOne Recycling Services, and other community-based employment. In expanding these services, JobOne will be able to accommodate more highly skilled workers in community-based jobs and to hire more of the nearly 100 people on JobOne's waiting list for employment.

David (not his real name) is 32-years-old and diagnosed with cerebral palsy and a mild intellectual disability.  He has held competitive employment in the past, but these experiences were unsuccessful.  Employers were not accommodating to his physical and emotional well-being.  After being unemployed for nearly eight years, David began work at JobOne. He uses a wheelchair and rides a Department of Transportation bus to and from work. He comes to work each day wearing a smile. His work assembling brush components for commercial street sweepers requires standing, but staff members modified David's work area so he can perform tasks from his wheelchair. David has a positive, upbeat attitude and will attempt any task with enthusiasm. He says he likes working at JobOne and wishes to continue to build his skills until he feels he is ready to work with JobOne community employment services.

Les (not his real name), a 30-year-old JobOne Recycling Services employee, is diagnosed with a moderate intellectual disability and lives with his parents. He participated in the JobOne school-to-work program while in high school before moving to competitive employment. He worked for a restaurant as a dishwasher for several years but was never allowed to increase his hours beyond four a week.

Les returned to JobOne in 2007 and now works in collecting and recycling cardboard.  This is work well suited to Les.  He likes physical work, visiting with customers, and operating the baler and electric pallet jack.
 
Les is absent from work only to attend Special Olympics events, which he loves. Working in the recycling program has increased his self-confidence and his earnings. A shy young man who never initiated much conversation, Les has become much more outgoing. He greets everyone and is very proud to tell people about his accomplishments and responsibilities at JobOne Recycling.
Description

Through the AbilityOne program, about 30 adults with significant disabilities perform work through federal government contracts - including custodial, clerical, and mailroom operations - at area federal government buildings and through community-based jobs.

 
AbilityOne has achieved tremendous success and works continuously to expand the program through new contract acquisition. In advertising for contract bids, customers make decisions based on business; JobOne’s AbilityOne contracts are not modified because they are carried out by adults with significant disabilities. AbilityOne contracts are profitable and provide resources that help provide services to other JobOne employees and programs.

Description

JobOne Careers is a non-profit subsidiary of JobOne. Careers began providing customized employment services in February 2014.  Our mission is to provide employment services for individuals with disabilities.  Our vision is that all individuals with disabilities will find meaningful and sustainable employment that matches their skills, interests, and aspirations.

 

Our philosophy is that JobOne Careers provides an individualized, timely, and systematic process by which a person seeking employment, in partnership with staff, learns to identify vocational options and practices in the development of employment skills, goals, and objectives.  In keeping with this philosophy, our programs are offered as a community-based service.  Our goal is to provide assessment, development, placement, and training assistance using a variety of techniques in the community in which an individual lives.  The techniques or tools utilized will depend on the needs of the person served, therefore will rarely be the same for any two individuals.  Customization of services and the use of Discovery for all individuals will play a critical role in their ultimate success.

Examples of Program Success

Sam, of Lee's Summit MO, has been employed at JobOne in the Blue Springs workshop since 2004.  Just a little over a month ago, Sam and his family expressed interest in working in the competitive workforce.  His mother opened up a case through Vocational Rehabilitation and asked to work with JobOne Careers for employment services.

During the discover and exploration process, Sam wrote down a list of jobs he would like to perform and/or work.  Using the job list Sam came up with, JobOne Careers was able to schedule a job shadow/work experience with a grocer that is located within walking distance from Sam's house.  Sam and his JobOne Careers Specialist met with the assistant store manager, who walked them through the process of the job duties Sam would perform.  Sam was very excited about the opportunity to learn those tasks that were all new to him.
 
A week later, Sam was filling out the application for employment and two weeks later, on Oct 13, 2015, he started his employment as a Utility worker.  Sam's job duties and responsibilities include sacking groceries, loading groceries into vehicles (if necessary), maintaining the upkeep of the bathrooms and registers, and pulling the carts in from the parking lot. 
CEO Comments
The employment opportunities that JobOne provides for adults with disabilities in Jackson County must be relevant work. It must be work that JobOne employees want to do, work that they can do, AND work that community businesses need.  There is no one-size-fits-all formula to carry out the JobOne mission.  And the existing JobOne programs described here—Subcontracting Services, Secure Document Destruction, JobOne Recycling Services, and AbilityOne—sometimes do not provide enough choices to meet the needs of every JobOne employee.
 
This creates a major challenge that can be met using two JobOne strategies--the development of new business ventures and the development of other community-based employment opportunities through the JobOne Careers program.
 
New business ventures require an entrepreneurial spirit and creativity, both of which JobOne possesses in abundance. They also require start-up funding.
 
JobOne can never be satisfied with a typical break-even non-profit budget. JobOne's business initiatives must support the growth and needs of existing businesses while creating a profit that enables new business start-ups.
JobOne Careers provides job choices and options through community-based employment.  Using each individual's talents, JobOne careers helps people with disabilities find jobs throughout the community--jobs that use their skills and interests--and helps to fulfill their career dreams.

Transportation is a major challenge for all JobOne programs. Only a handful of JobOne’s approximately 300 employees have driver’s licenses and are able to drive to work. The rest rely on friends, family members, neighbors, residential providers, public transportation, or the Jackson County Department of Transportation (DOT). When these transportation possibilities fail, or when an employee lives outside of regular DOT routes, the possibility of meaningful employment disappears for many.
 
JobOne staff members are continually driven to meet these challenges through an understanding of the importance of meaningful work along with the positive responses of JobOne employees. Many JobOne employees have experienced unemployment—some for many years on end. They know the isolation, loneliness, and feelings of uselessness that unemployment can engender. And they are quick to express gratitude for JobOne’s work on their behalf. We at JobOne are grateful for the support of our communities, which makes our work possible.

CEO Comments The biggest challenge facing JobOne is the rapid pace of change taking place in our industry.  Forces at the local, state, and federal levels are changing how and where 'employment services' for people with disabilities are being provided.  The biggest challenge that we embrace and agree with is the shift from sheltered workshops to community employment.  Our wide variety of employment options and our growing Careers program demonstrates our commitment to choices and employment opportunity taking place in the least restrictive, most typical settings possible with high levels of integration between those with disabilities and those who don't have disabilities.  However, the biggest challenge will be serving those that have been employed in our workshops for many years and who may not be prepared for or desire other more integrated choices.  In addition, those younger workers with the most significant disabilities desiring employment will struggle to find jobs in the general labor market.  We must keep our workshop program small yet strong and vibrant for those who want and need this service while at the same time continue to innovate and provide more challenging integrated options.

CEO Comments

Effective governance is critical to JobOne’s success. The JobOne Board of Directors is committed to driving the organization forward in the areas of diversity, strategic Board recruitment, and effective representation of the people and communities JobOne serves.
 
The Board must help top management guide the organization to success and hold management responsible for mission success or failure. In addition, the Board should be of sufficient size and composition to effectively govern the agency.

As a strategic goal of JobOne’s governance plan, the Board of Directors Executive Committee will draft a board policies manual, track board and board committee meeting attendance with a goal of 90 percent attendance, and track all board members' service hours. 
 
To meet its strategic goals related to fund development and marketing, JobOne must create a culture of giving. Most foundations, and many donors, will not give to organizations that do not have 100 percent Board participation in philanthropic giving. This drives a second strategic goal: the Board will create a plan to achieve 100 percent board participation in giving and in fund-development activities.

Most importantly, the board must work closely with management to deliver top quality, innovative employment services for those we serve now and those we will serve in the future.

Organization Comments

JobOne's vision is that people with disabilities who possess the desire to work will have access to personalized, satisfying, and meaningful work throughout their lives. To make this vision a reality, JobOne continually strives to create more jobs and employ more adults with disabilities. The organization accomplishes this by expanding its current businesses and by creating new ones.

JobOne's success rests squarely on a strong entrepreneurial spirit that is deeply imbedded in the JobOne culture. JobOne staff and Board members do not hesitate to take calculated risks on new business ventures if those ventures show promise toward improving the lives of JobOne employees. In fact, JobOne employees count on us to take risks on their behalf.  However, JobOne has a strong history of creating detailed business plans, accurate budgets and forecasts, and sophisticated financial reporting.  JobOne has a very active Board finance committee and board members with very high levels of business finance expertise.
 
Improved business planning and budgeting, as well as much improved operating practices, have helped to improve the bottom line of the agency over the past several years.  We understand the link between financial and mission success and take our stewardship of scarce resources very seriously.  We will continue to seek ways to enhance opportunities for employees through entrepreneurial activity that also leads to increased net revenue for the agency.
