Opportunity Connection is a recovery-oriented program focusing on employment readiness and skill building. Classes, groups and activities are available for adults with psychiatric disabilities who are part of the Santa Cruz County Mental Health System of Care. Through group activities and individual counseling we provide strength-based support for participants in achieving desired vocational, educational and employment goals and enriching their lives through community integration. The program provides opportunities for participants to “try out” various volunteer and paid employment positions in-house and in the community that prepare them and for competitive employment. The Opportunity Connection program is open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Monday-Thursday.
