To Whom It May Concern;
I am the Director of Special Education for the Timberlane Regional School District located in Plaistow NH. I have had the pleasure of working with Toni Brachant and Work Opportunities, Ltd for the past 6 years. We contracted with Work Opportunities when another vendor we were using was not able to provide consistent staffing for our students. As a result, their program was continually interrupted. Toni assured us that this was not the case with Work Opportunities. She has been true to her word, and our students have benefited from wonderful community and work related experiences. I have been impressed with the quality of staff that Work Opportunities has been able to hire and retain. In addition, our students work on IEP goals, Personal Centered Planning, job exploration, community outreach, leisure activities and volunteer experiences, which have enriched the community as well as the student. We have found that students receive more consistent funding when they enter adult services, and most of the students have obtained a paying job that they have maintained after graduation. In addition, Toni is very responsive when there are issues or problems to work out. She has attended many parent meetings and communicates clearly about the supports and services offered through her program.
I would recommend Work Opportunities without reservation as a vocational vendor.
