At the L.E. Phillips Career Development Center, it takes a lot of community support from partners like you to achieve our mission. The Career Development Center helps provide meaningful and appropriate vocational services and employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities or disadvantages. Nearly 1,500 individuals are served each year throughout 8 Wisconsin counties.
We provided over 3000 hours of vocational services and provided 74 new employment opportunities through our job placement services in 2020.
In addition to vocational services and employment opportunities, the Career Development Center also operates an Outreach Center in Chippewa County that specializes in homelessness prevention and helping those who may be in a crisis.
They served 501 unique individuals, provided over 2,773 services and coordinated 2,121 nights of shelter in Chippewa County for individuals/families experiencing homelessness or a crisis.
We are hosting our 32nd Annual Charity Golf Outing on August 6, 2021 at Hickory Hills Golf Course in Eau Claire. The event is expected to draw over 300 supporters throughout the Chippewa Valley. Funds raised at this event will directly support local individuals with disabilities and disadvantages.
You can help support the Charity Golf Outing in a variety of ways. Be a sponsor for the event and golf at the outing. Additionally, you can donate items for the silent auction. Donation recommendations include gift certificates, services, merchandise, or themed baskets. Please free to call or email us to make arrangements for pick-up of your donation. Finally, many hands are needed during the event. If you are interested in volunteering at the golf outing, please let me know.
