Janitorial Program Trains People With Disabilities

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (August 3, 2021) –At a time when hiring frontline staff is difficult yet cleaning demand remains higher than ever, JVS Human Services in Detroit continues to step up and help the cause — while also providing for people with disabilities and other obstacles to finding work.

JVS runs an 8-week paid janitorial program where participants harness custodial and interpersonal skills, soon qualifying them for work in a variety of facility sectors, ranging from retail to hospitality and medical, the Detroit Jewish News reports.

The five days per-week program, pays the participants at minimum wage. Those that either have an open case with the Veterans Administration (VA) or Michigan Rehabilitation Services (MRS) are eligible to be referred.
