There are two phases to WR, pre-placement and post-placement. Pre-Placement is the phase where an individual participates in state approved activities such as Community Service, Paid Work Experience, Education and Training and Job Search for a predetermined amount of hours each week. The individual remains in this phase until employment of 20 hours or more is obtained. Once employed for 20 or more hours the individual enters the post-placement phase where they remain for at least 6 months. During the post placement phase the Service Coordinator provides case management to assure the individual is transitioning positively into the workforce as well as providing support and resources. Once an individual has worked 6 consecutive months they have successfully completed the program.||Allegheny||Life'sWork of Western PA||Life'sWork of Western PA|
