Gentile, Frank D.; Houseman, Roberta
Reported is a project designed to explore the feasibility of establishing a self and home employment program for disabled homebound persons in clerical, business, and service occupations. The local homebound population was surveyed, businesses contacted, jobs studied, and five clients trained and placed. Results were successful and the jobs showed a potential for regional development. The jobs developed were insurance teleservice claims representative, bank credit collection clerk, and school substitute acquisition clerk. Companies involved were satisfied with the quality of work and interested in hiring more homebound. (KW)
