Finding the right match is important when hiring a Person Support Worker (PSW) or Home Care Worker (HCW) to support you or a family member in-home, and promoting successful working relationships between people with disabilities and the people they employ to provide in-home supports is critical. Employer Resource Connection (ERC) program is here to help! Join us to learn more about the ERC program, offering FREE resources and services. This session will have you feeling more confident in knowing how to access or refer people to their local ERC program, and will also provide you with valuable resources and tools to use and share with others.

Learning Objectives:

Participants joining this workshop will:
• gain information about the ERC program and services
• have an inside look at what an ERC consultant can do for you!
• see person-centered examples of management tools, safety planning and supports for increasing independence and promoting effective communication
