This piece looks at the Jewish Vocational Service of Miami and its project to assist under-privileged, under-employed, under-educated, and under-trained individuals in attaining gainful employment and to become a part of society again. The project utilized a rehabilitation workshop for an intensive evaluation and pre-vocational training to establish possible job goals and to place the chronically unemployed in on-the-job training situations. The piece found that at least 89.1 percent of the group had at least one primary disability. The piece also affirms that a main disadvantage of the program was the one-year funding which limited the time through which the success of the program can be identified. The piece asserts that the program was successful but because of money issues could not be continued.
