Over the course of a year, the size of the labor force and levels of employment undergo fluctuations due to such seasonal events as changes in
weather, reduced or expanded production, harvests, major holidays and closing of schools: Because these seasonal events follow a regular
pattern each year, their influence on statistical trends can be eliminated by adjusting the monthly statistics. Seasonal Adjustment makes it easier
to observe cyclical and other nonseasonal developments.

Behavioral Health Recovery Program (BHRP)

Basic
The Behavioral Health Recovery Program assists eligible participants with clinical and basic recovery
supports as well as community-based intensive case management services, The program is for HUSKY
D/Medicaid recipients with behavioral health needs.
Recognizing that individuals receiving behavioral health treatment are more likely to remain engaged in
treatment when their basic recovery support needs are met, the Behavioral Health Recovery Program
(BHRP) provides financial assistance to HUSKY D/Medicaid for Low Income Adults (LIA) recipients who are
temporarily unemployed and in need of recovery supports that cannot be met by other community
resources.
These supports include recovery housing, independent housing, bus passes, food, clothing, and personal
care items. The program also offers coverage for intensive and long-term substance abuse residential
treatment, when those services are determined to be medically necessary.
The Department of Mental Health has contracted with ABH as the administrative service organization for
the BHRP.
ABH reviews and authorizes requests y treatment providers and vendors fgj

services. ABH is also responsible for utilization management, claims processing and payment, member
services, and provider network management.

Step 2; Stay active by engaging in productive activities
Find activities to show that you are still engaged in your community and focused on gaining skills and qualifications. Activities
also till time on your resume, showing employers that you haven’t been stagnant since you left your previous position.
Personal Development or Professional Development

CUsses at a community college, university or training program can keep you up-to-date with technology and other trends in

you a chance to test-drive a specific job or company.

Development Through Volunteer Engagement
Volunteering can involve much more than planting trees and painting buildings; it’s also a great way to learn new skills. You
can design a website, organize an event, write letters on behalf of the organization or have any variety of other responsihilrties.
Volunteering at a specific

organization you want to work for is an excellent way to get your foot in the door and make a notable first impression. If you can
show you are a valuable and effective volunteer, employers will think you may make a valuable and effective employee.
Volunteering enables you to expand your network. By working on a cause yoci are passionate about, you will meet likeminded people, some of whom may be able to help with your job search.
Volunteering is a fun and valuable way to break up the monotony and provide you with an anchor while you look for ajob. it
can also provide a sense of accomplishment.
Step 3; Update and revise your resume
Understand tile online application process before submitting your resume. Applying for ajob today requires that you tailor
your resume to the specific position. Before submitting your resume, make sure it contains some of the key words that are
ec LlIrled in tnejob description.
Use terms that apply to the specific job and/or industry. Sprinkling in newer terms can show that you’re current with the
tecflriology and other trends of the field.
Include accomplishments—both at work and outside of it—so employers can see how you’ve done, not just what you’ve done.
Quantifi your experiences. Use numbers to communicate changes or improvements you have made over a specific period.
Examples include quantitative gains in production or performance, notable customer satisfaction, greater organizational
performance, cost reductions or cost avoidance.
Include legitimate volunteer or nontraditional work experience, to eliminate or decrease any gaps in employment.
If your formal education occurred more than 10 years ago, consider taking dates off and adding other training or education
you nave obtained since then.
Step 4; Network, network, network
Networking is still tIle most effective way to find out aboutjobs. Prepare your “eievator speech,” in which you describe your si<iiis.
and career goals in two minutes. Preparing ahead helps you take advantage of opportunities to taik, at a moment’s notice, with
sonleorle who may be in a position to help you.
.
Reach out to family, friends, neighbors and associates.
Usc your connections to your advantage. The more people you know, the better your chances of finding and landing a job.
Talk with your previous employers and co-workers. People who have seen you at vvork before and are in your field of experience
carl he the best people to know.
Seek out community groups for assistance, including those for unemployed people, who help one another with leads,
references and other support. Programs, both formal and informal, have started in communities nationwide.
If you can’t find a group in your community, start one, With nearly a quarter of Americans laid off at some point because cc f the

Use online sites, including Linkedln.

•
Reach out to employers that interest you.
Mane comnan:es host open houses or exhibitions to showcase their work. If it looks interesting to you. check it out. Ad;
clue shuns and make some contacts, too.
If you want to talk with someone at an organization, go for it. Reach out to a firm you have great interest in and ask to. come’
and learn more about it. Dont mention employment in the first conversation. A good first impression can lead to that impo; tart
referral or helpful information.
Look for local nonprofit or government organizations that can help you with your job search.
Never pay an organization to find you ajob—most likely it is not a legitimate business.
Take acreantage of the services that government-funded Career One Stop centers offer. These centers provide free assistance
to job seekers. More information is available at http/www.carccronestop.org/
Learn about local nonprofit organizations serving the long.Term unemployed. The programs are as varied as the commun:ties
tney serve and can be researched online.
Step 5: Become More Technologically Proficient
Ifis no secret that many employers 1001< U their applicants online. While most people know to keep offensive pictures and
po’sts off Facebook, you can take this a step further by creating a brand for yourself. Use Linkedln as your primary tOol, hut earn
more about how to effectively use Twitter and Facebook as a means of “branding yourself.”
Social networks are an excellent way to interact with potential employers. Sharing information via a status update on Linkedlo
or re-tweeting or tweeting at an employer or sending messages on Facebook with relevant information can get you noticed.
Scanning blogs on relevant topics allows you to stay up-to-date with the industry and hear different perspectives. Commenting
on blogs and engaging with their authors are other valuable methods of gaining contacts in the field.
Joining listserves is a great way to crowdsource your information gathering. People often mention opportunities they heard 01
or topics they think are worth sharing.
Although it’s efficient to comb through the larger online job boards, it’s worth noting that many listings receive hundreds of
applicants. One way to find less visible opportunities is to research what companies you might like to work for and search their
sites for vacancies. It takes longer to do this, but you mayjust find that perfect under-the-radar opportunity. Following up your
application with a message to the company contact person further enhances your potential of being noticed.
If you need help in navigating the world of computers or even getting access to a computer consider a local library. Most
libraries have computers available to the public, and some offer free resources like classes or coaching. Career One-Stops also
offer classes and computers for public use.
Step 6: Prepare for your future interview
Get fit by exercising and eating right. When you feel good you will come across well in an interview.
Consider how you look. A good haircut and neat, clean business attire are a way to say “I respect myself.” You don’t hare to
buy exp’ens.tve suits if you don’t have the budget; just scour the resale shops, and make sure the clothes fit and are clean ann
ironed.
Address gaps in your resume’s work history upfront. Offering an explanation prevents a potential employer from maidnp
,assumptions that may be incorrect. Similarly, take the opportunity to address any possible concerns about your being
c’..’erqualified for the position. When a candidate raises the issue, this can help put an employer’s mind at ease.
Never underestimate the value of a handwritten note. Send one to each person who takes time to meet with you in an
interview or wth whom you have a key networking conversation. In a high-tech world, the high-touch approach always gets
nrc tided.

kostL’r CmrfriLiutiw Writ
For many job seekers, the”Do
you have any questiofl for
me?” portion of an interview
signals the end is near. It’s
tempting to just sav”no” and
get out of the hot seat as
quickly as pocs ible, hut fight
that urge.
Asking questions shows the
intervielver You were listening
while they were talking, con
vevs your interest in the com
pany and helps you decide if
it’s where you want to work.
After all. inter’.ICWS are a two
way street the hiring team
decides whether you’re what
they want in an employee, and
you decide if the company
culture and specific role are
where you want to devote
your time and energy for the
foreseeable future.
--
Here are five essential ques
tions you should ask In a
job interview.
1. “flow tn you define suc
ce’s for this job?”
This question helps you get a
clear understanding of what
the job entails and the expc
tations the company will have
for you in it, says John Cross—
man, president of real estate
management firm Crossman
& Corn panv.
For example, if you’re apply
ing for a sales position, an
answer to this question might
be that you acquire 10 new cli
ents in the next 90 days. It
may also be that you upsell
current customers by 25 per
cent over 90 days. As a candi
date, you’ll want to know
whether you’ll be cold-calling
prospects or focusing on exist
ing customers before you
make your decision.
2. Somethbtg specific about
the organization
It’s always a great idea to ask
a question tnat shows you did
your research before the inter
view says Chris Delaney,
author ofThe 73 Rules of
Influencing the Interview,” He
recommends building rapport
and showcasing your research
skills with a technique he calls
“share expertise. ask ques
tion.”
His example: “I recently read
that the organization is look
ing to break into Europe.
What do you foresee as the
main barrier with this proj
ect?”
3.”Can I have a quick
tour?”
See also:”Can I meet some
people I’d he working with?”
Both questipns will get you
out of the interview room and
allow you to get a better look
at the office. This will give you
a chance to gauge co-worker
interaction, workspace design
(lighting, noise level, cleanli
ness) and the deoartment as a
whole, says Michelle Corner,
practice area leader and vice
president at the Messina
Group. a staffing consulting
firm,
Requesting a tour or a quick
inttoduction to potential co
workers also “signals to the
interviewer that a candidate is
taking a ye” ted interest in the
position,” she says.
4. “What is your favorite
part about working here?”
“Companies, like job candi
dates, are putting their best
foot forward during the inter
view process, often highlight
ing all of thir corporate
perks. By asking every person
you interview with what they
like best about working at the
company you’ll get a better
sense of thie perks that people
regularly experience versus
the perks that live only on
paper,” explains Sherr Dixon
a senior vice president at
Adecco Staffing US.
“If the interviewer responds
that they love how they can
make their yoga class each
night and log hack onto work
From home if needed, then
you know the corn panv takes
work-life balance seriously,”
she explains.
5. “Do you see any reason T
might not be a gdod fit for
this position?”
It rna’ seem counterinftjtjve
to inquire about your poten
tial flaws during an intervie
hut it’s actually a great thing
to bring up at the end of the
interview says Morgan Nich
ols, managiçig partner at Chi
cago-based recruiting and
staffing firm Torrev & Gray.
“This gives you an opportuni
ty to know that the interview

gives you a last chance to clar

may have or elaborate further

Ready To Work
Program summery
On October 15, 2014, the U.S. Department of Labor announced S 169,771,960 In grants to expedite the
employment of Americans struggling with long-term unemployment. The grants are part of the Ready to
Work Partnership (Ready To Work) initiative to support and scale innovative collaborations between
empfoyers, nonprofit organizations and federal job training programs to help connect ready-to-work
Americans with ready-to-be-filled jobs. (in CT $12 million)
-
This program responds to the President’s call to action to support and expand public-private partnerships
that are helping long-term unemployed individuals get back to work. The Ready To Work grant program
will provide those experiencing long-term unemployment with a range of training and supportive and
specialized services leading to rapid employment in middle and high-skilled jobs.
Ready To Work projects are built around a comprehensive, up-front assessment of long-term unemployed
individuals’ needs and skills, resulting in customized interventions across three tracks: 1) intensive coaching
and other short-term, specialized services culminating in directjob placement into middle and high-skilled
jobs; 2) short-term interventions leading to employment into middle and high-skilled jobs; and 3)
accelerated skills training along a career pathway to middle and high skilled jobs.
Projects incorporate work-based training models with earning components for long-term unemployed
workers through models such as on-the-job training (OJT), paid work experience, paid internships, and
Registered Apprenticeships. These programs also include tangible commitments from employers and other
partners to provide employment opportunities, technical skills training, and on-the-job training and other
paid work experience for H-I 13 occupations, while also addressing the barriers, income needs, and
supportive service needs unique to long-term unemployed workers.

Rides To Work Gets You To Job
Interviews Congratulations. You
have a job interview at a business in
another town. How are you going to
get there? Check out RTW.
—
The road to employment starts with
an interview. Today’s jobs are often
many miles away from where people
live, RTW may provide transportation
to job interviews or job fairs, across
town or 30 miles away. In many cases,
the job fairs are on-site at employers
that also have regular transportation
available for workers.
560 Ella T. Grasso Blvd, New Haven, CT 06519
T: 203-867-4030 x245, F: 203-562-1106, E: [email protected]
The Workforce Alliance and the CT Department of Labor often arrange on-site job fairs at an employer’s location. Job fairs are a big help for
employers. Reading your resume is not enough; employers must meet and interview job-seekers. Job fairs save employers time and money,
and increase your chances of landing a good job.
The RTW Auto Emergency Fund Car repair bills and the rising cost of insurance can take a big chunk out of a paycheck. Sometimes, it’s just
too much. The RTW Auto Emergency Fund offers one-time grants up to $600 to help you keep your car on the road. Use it for repairs,
registration or driver’s license fees, or to pay car insurance. Don’t let a bump in the road keep you from getting to work.
-
Start Right Don’t let the cost of commuting keep you from taking a job. Try “Job Starter”, the RTW program that provides free
transportation for your first month of employment. “Job Starter” gives you time to catch up and begin affording the commute.

Eligible employees can also get ongoing subsidized shuttle bus service to jobs on heavily traveled routes along the shoreline from Milford to
Old Saybrook.

Employment and Training
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formery known as Food Stamps) recipients throughout
Connecticut may be eligible to participate in an Employment and Training Program. The Employment and
Training program was created by Congress in 1987 as a means to assist able-bodied clients in obtaining
employment. From the start, the purpose of the Employment and Training program has been to help
SNAP households gain skills that will increase self-sufficiency. States are allowed flexibility in designing and
operating their Employment and Training programs.
If you are receiving SNAP in Connecticut, and not receiving financial assistance from the Temporary Family
Assistance program, you may be eligible to participate in one of the following activities; English as a Second
Language, General Equivalency Diploma, Adult Basic Education, Work Experience or Structured Job Search
Skill Training. The Connecticut Employment and Training program also offers short term vocational
programs at several area colleges and nonprofit providers.
DSS has currently partnered with ten organizations to provide these Employment and Training program
services. They are:

the workforce system, un- and under-employed residents. and youth.
advocated for a new program called New Haven Works” that would partner

independent board of directors, and will be funded by public and private
sources.

year after the first convening of the Board of Aldermen’s Working Group!

Who We Are

Our Mission
-
Our Services
NCD is a group of college students committed to bridging the gap between the college community
and New Haven at large. We offer a we/coming environment providing case management for low—
income and homeless clients. NCD is run entirely by volunteers, with cooperation from several
gracious community partners.
No Closed Doors aims to harness the skills of college students to break down barriers and open
doors between people and the resources that they need to succeed. We believe that everyone in our
community should have access to the services, opportunities and attention they need to achieve
personal success.
Our service is unique in that it has no eligibility requirements for clients. We do not turn anyone
away, unless they pose a security threat to themselves, other clients or volunteers. In addition, there
is no limit on the services that clients can receive from us. All of our volunteers are passionate and
friendly college students, eager to provide flexible and comprehensive assistance that complements
the more specialized services provided by other community organizations. Our program is also
unique for students, as it provides an outlet for them to make a direct, substantial, and meaningful
impact in the community in which they live and study.
NCD open:
5 p.m.
Monday through Thursday 1
Fridays 1 1 a.m. 5 p.m.

We welcome walk—ins, though to ensure that we can fit you into our schedule we recommend
that you call us at (203) 752—9711, e—mail us [email protected]
or fill out the form found on our website: www.yale.edu/ncd under the clients section.
NCD’s success is contingent on successful partnerships with other community service agencies from around
New Haven. Please let us know if you are interested in referring clients to our organization, having us refer
clients to you: or partnering with our outreach team to connect with our city’s most marginalized citizens.

What is Literacy Volunteers?
Literacy Volunteers of Greater New Haven is a non-profit organization that has been active in the
region since 1976. Last year Literacy Volunteers supported 231 volunteer tutors who delivered
free tutoring to more than 1246 adult students at 37 sites.
Literacy Volunteers is supported by Connecticut Department of Education funds, private
foundations and community grants (CDBG dollars, the Community Foundation of Greater New
Haven, United Way of Meriden/Wallingford, the Valley United Way, the Valley Community
Foundation) as well as donations from individuals and businesses.
How Does the Program Work?
Adults who speak English but need help learning to read at a higher level work together in small
groups. The groups meet twice a week with trained volunteer tutors using an established
curriculum with workbooks, A computer software program provides additional help.
Non-English speaking (ESOL or English for Speakers of Other Languages) adults also work with
tutors in small group settings. Classes are held weekly at a variety of sites throughout the area.
Day and night time classes are offered. All classes are free and are set up on a semester basis.
Who are the Tutors?
Tutors come from many different backgrounds
men and women of all ages and diverse life
experiences. They may be retired, have full-time jobs or they may be students. Many have some
college experience. Only a few have previously taught. What tutors have in common is their
desire to help someone improve his or her life.
—
Tutors go through an Orientation and Training Program before they start tutoring. They receive
ongoing support from Literacy Volunteers program managers, who help the tutors prepare
lessons, test students and locate helpful resource materials.

The Urban Improvement Corps, UIC, is a premier mentoring and tutoring program at
Yale University focused on providing elementary, middle, and high school students in
the New Haven, cr area with the opportunity to grow and develop with some of the
most brilliant minds in our nation. Here, at UIC, we foster positive growth and develop
life-long student learners, while giving each student the opportunity to discover their
full potentials academically. UIC is a registered non-profit 501 (c)3 organization. Our
organization has revised and cultivated our vision and purpose to better address the
changing times and the concerns of New Haven.
Our Mission
The mission of the UIC is to spark intellectual growth amongst urban youth. Through tutoring and
entrepreneurship classes, the program seeks to assist students in achieving academic success, and to inspire
inner-city students to succeed beyond the classroom and in the business world.
About the Afro-American Cultural Center
The Afro-American Cultural Center at Yale University (also known as The House) was established in the fall
of 1969 due to the rise of issues surrounding race and cMl unrest at Yale and throughout the New Haven
community. Due to the increased number of black students and the rising social consciousness of the
1 960s, students at Yale rallied to create a place and space that black students (and members of the
community) could convene for social and political means.
The original location of ‘The House’ was 1195 Chapel Street From its inception the Afro-American Cultural
Center, which it was later renamed, has always represented the vital and vibrant presence of AfricanAmericans (and those interested in African-American cultural) at Yale. The House’s current location at 211
Park Street provides additional access for members of the New Haven community tojoin the students and
participate in a host of cultural events and activities.
Since 1969 the House has nurtured and encouraged generations of black Yalies to become some the
Nation’s leading thinkers, activist and professionals.
As promised during our community breakfast on October 2nd, we’re writing to introduce you to the Urban
Improvement Corps (UIC), a premier mentoring and tutoring program at Yale University focused on
providing tutoring for middle and high schoolers in New Haven.
Established in 1968, the UIC was one of the first organizations housed at Yale University-s Afro-American
Cultural Center. Today, the center is not only the home for more than 25 different organizations, but is also
the main center for tutoring and mentoring for the UIC.
From assistance in mathematics to chemistry to French to college applications, Urban Improvement Corps
tutors are committed to providing superior tutoring services-all for free.
To sign up, visit www.yaleuic.org and click on the -Registration- tab.
Students and parents will be notified of their admission into the program within a week of completing the
registration form.

H ovv to Think for Yourself
BVZorOHerEilard www.essentiallifeskills.net
Do you think for yourself?
In these times of fast media and ever-growing Internet we are under so many external influences that it can be
difficult to know when we are thinking for ourselves. Unless you are a discerning, very aware person, you most likely
don’t even know when your thinking is not your own. Not that all outside influence is bad or detrimental to forming
your own views, but being unable to think for yourself can make you miserable at best, or a puppet of someone
else’s programming, at worst.
Admittedly, we are all born into societies or cultures where the norms and customs are already established. We have little
cnoice but to conform to a large degree to what is already in place. This is not necessarily a bad thing, however, it can be
conflning and controlling if we accept everything blindly and never question the status quo.
Does this mean all of your ideas can he original and unlike everyone else’s? Not at all!
Nor does it require being contrary and argumentative just to be defiant or stand out. To think for yourself means that
whatever opinions you hold will be well thought out and come from a position of thorough investigation and thoughtful
analysis. It means choosing to not compromise the facts for the sake of consensUs or fitting in. It is not unlike critical thinking it
just encompasses a broader scope of choices and decision-making in your life.
-
As an example, how many of us feel the need to keep up with ‘the latest’? We wear clothes, listen to music and follow trends
that the media tells us we should in order to he cool. Marketing companies create ads that hypnotize us into a herd mentality as
we fall into debt, wear fashions that are unbecoming, and get caught up in a cycle of over-spending, over-consuming and then
stressing out over it. Before we realize it, we are living lives designed for us by the powers that be and without our conscious
participation.
Another trap we fall into when we don’t think for ourselves is groupthink. Groupthink, a term coined by Irving Janis in 1 972,
is a psychological phenomenon that takes place within a group of people who try to avoid conflict and reach agreement
without critically evaluating options or alternative ideas. The problem with groupthink is that it hinders finding the best solutions,
impedes creative ideas and thwarts independent thinking. Wanting to be part of the crowd can certainly have its drawbacks!
So how can you cultivate the ability to think for yourself? Tips on how to think for yourself
Develop a strong sense of self. <now who you are, what you want and what is best for you. Do not let others, especially
marketing companies and the media, tell you how you should look, feel and act. Do what is best for you. Cultivate your own
tastes and enjoy your preferences.
-
Be well-informed. Gather as much information about a subject as possible before forming an opinion. Build your mental
resources by reading, observing, and listening for yourself. Then take time to reflect and evaluate.
Be flexibie. Look for solutions and outcomes to a situation from as many perspectives as you can. Determine the pros and cons.
Are there other possibilities? Whom might it harm/benefit? What are the potential consequences?
Identify possible biases. Are you being unduly influenced by your culture, upbringing or other people’s opinions? Are you being
fair and open-minded? Many times we make poor decisions because we begin with the wrong premise. If we take time to
evaluate and judge based upon what we observe first hand rather than what we’ve been lead to believe, we can arrive at a
more appropriate and practical conclusion.
Do not buckle under pressure, fear, or guilt. Have the courage to stand up for what you really believe and have deduced
yourself. If you go along with the crowd for the sake of keeping peace, avoiding confrontation, or fear of failure, you do
everyone a disservice, especially yourself. You may have a brilliant idea, or maybe it happens to be the right thing to do. If no one
hears about it, a healthy discussion cannot take place and all possibilities will not be considered. A good idea has the potential to
evolve into a better one with input from a variety of sources.
The benefits of thinking for yourself:
•
You develop self-confidence and trust in your abilities
•
You attain a greater sense of accomplishment
•
You expand your mind and boost your brain power
•
You gain respect from others by standing up for what you believe in and by being original
• You are more aware and alert to what the media is trying to sell you
• You are more open to self-improvement and alternative viewpoints
• You are more interesting to others by expanding their thinking and options
You are NOT thinking for yourself when:
J You let others, the media, or convention sway you from doing what’s right for you
/ You buy into negative, one-dimensional stereotypes based on sex, race or culture
./ You do something because it has always been done that way even if it no longer works
-
J You follow old wives’ tales, superstitions or fallacies that defy common sense
J You don’t take time to think things through carefully and fully

To know yourself is your first priority.
How can you set
goals, go about life, and have relationships if you don’t know who you are or what you want?
You really can’t.
To not know yourself leads to confusion and wasting much time in hit and miss situations.
We tend to underestimate the importance of knowing ourselves. Many of us go through each day reacting to
events and just getting by rather than making conscious choices based on who we are and what we want.
When we don’t know where we are headed it’s hard to set goals, get motivated and determine the best course of
action. Before we can do any of these things we must establish who we are.
To know yourself:
a
Be aware of your strengths, weaknesses, likes and dislikes
•
Observe and be aware of your moods, reactions and responses to what is happening around you
•
Become aware of how these moods and emotions affect your state of mind
•
Examine how you interact with others
•
Observe how your environment affects you
l<nowing and understanding yourself better, in turn, leads to better decision making, setting and reaching
appropriate goals and altogether living more productively.
There are many interesting personality tests and evaluations for self-discovery that can help you become more in
tune to yourself and are fun to do.
Two powerful tools I found exceptionally helpful are:
(http://www.myersbriggs.org)
The Enneagram (http://www.enneagraminstitute.com/)
Not only do these tools help you understand yourself better and what drives some of your behaviors, they also help
you understand and get along better with others.

Over the past two decades, through a steady process of program
modification and development, VA Connecticut’s Errera Community Care
Center (“ECCC”) has evolved into one of the leading centers of innovation
in psychosocial rehabilitation and in the integration of the psychosocial
and biomedical aooroaches.
ECCC serves veterans struggling with mental illness and/ or substance abuse disorders, homelessness,
and/or aging. At the ECCC, a team of multidisciplinary mental health professionals come together to
provide an array of community-based rehabilitative programs including day and crisis intervention
programs, vocational programs, housing programs (ranging from subsidized to non-subsidized, supported
to non-supported), homeless outreach and advocacy and case management programs.
Believing in recovery and hope, and utilizing the principles of psychiatric rehabilitation, ECCC staffmembers partner directly with the veteran being served to identity his or her goals and needs. Recovery
plans build on the person’s strengths and help the individual compensate for the negative effects of the
psychiatric disability. Services and supports are provided in the community to enhance natural support
systems, to advance independence, and integration, so that each individual can live and function at
optimal levels in the least restrictive environment possible.
Affirmative, non-stigmatizing attitudes about persons with mental illness, framed by an empowerment
structure serve as the foundation of ECCC psychosocial rehabilitation services. ECCC represents the
vanguard of the national movement to integrate Peer Specialists into mental health treatment and recovery
programs. Peer Specialists are health and mental health service consumers who have received peer
counseling training, and have demonstrated the skill, motivation, and desire to help their peers in a
supportive and/or counseling role. Most have either suffered from mental or physical illness, substance
abuse problems, and/or have been homeless. ECCC’s eleven Peer Specialists are integrated throughout
ECCC’s programs. In a myriad of ways, they strengthen and enrich those programs.
People in recovery operate the Veterans Empowerment Committee (VEC). Recipients of services play an
active role in the day-to-day operations of the ECCC by orienting all new recipients of services, running the
community lunch program, identifying issues and needs, and advocating and seeking resources to meet
these needs. Persons in recovery are involved in all aspects of ECCC programming including writing and/or
co-signing all policies. Persons in recovery also hold direct leadership roles by serving as Community
Mental Health Advisory Board members who advise and consult to the Chief, Mental Health Care line and
staff at VA CT. They monitor the services provided, advocate both within the hospital leadership structure
and within the recovery community on issues important to quality of care, access to care, and resources. In
addition, recipients of services serve as facilitators for Vet-to-Vet, a consumer designed, run and facilitated
psycho-educational program which was initiated at the ECCC by Moe Armstrong in early 2002. Meetings
are both educational and supportive and are led by consumers each weekday. Critical to the full spectrum
of services provided at the ECCC are the community partnerships that have been established and nurtured
with a wide range of private industry, charitable and governmental bodies in the region.
At ECCC veterans are served with innovative, effective, individualized programs to find transitional and
supportive housing and jobs through a Compensated Work Therapy Program. In addition, staff advocate
locally and regionally to rectify the overwhelming effects of homelessness, poverty, inadequate resources
and the stigma of mental illness.
Evidence of ECCC’s recognition as the leader in each of its fields of endeavor is found in the increasing
number of organizations coming to ECCC to learn, the role its staff plays in education throughout the
country, how it operates, and how its model can be replicated throughout the nation.
While the contents of this site have been developed in cooperation with VA personnel, it is not an official site of the Department of Veterans
Affairs.
VA is dedicated to helping homeless Veterans
and Veterans at risk of homelessness secure and
maintain employment leading to increased
residential and personal stability.
Our goal is to afford Veterans the opportunity to return to healthy, productive lifestyles within their own communities.
The Homeless Veteran Supported Employment Program (HVSEP) provides
vocational assistance, job development and placement, and ongoing supports to
improve employment outcomes among homeless Veterans and Veterans at-risk of
homelessness. Formerly homeless Veterans who have been trained as Vocational
Rehabilitation Specialists (VRS5) provide these services.
To reach a trained VA
responder, call
1 -877-4AID-VET
(877-424-3838).
VA’s Compensated Work Therapy (CWT) Program is a national vocational
program comprised of three unique programs which assist homeless Veterans in
returning to competitive employment: Sheltered Workshop, Transitional Work, and
Supported Employment. Veterans in CWT are paid at least the federal or state
minimum wage, whichever is higher.
VA’s National Cemetery Administration & Veterans Health Administration
have also formed partnerships at national cemeteries, where formerly homeless
Veterans from the CWT program have received work opportunities.
The Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment (VR&E) VetSuccess Program
assists Veterans with service-connected disabilities to prepare for, find, and keep
suitable jobs. Services that may be provided include: Comprehensive rehabilitation
evaluation to determine abilities, skills, and interests for employment; employment
services; assistance finding and keeping a job; and On the Job Training (OJT),
apprenticeship, and non-paid work experiences.
For information about possible employment services in their area, Veterans can call
the National Call Center for Homeless Veterans hotline at 1-877-4AID-VET.
You will be connected to a trained VA staff member.
Hotline staff will conduct a brief screen to assess your needs.
Homeless Veterans will be connected with the Homeless Program point of contact
at the nearest VA facility.
Contact information will be requested so staff may follow-up.
You can caB for yourself or

Housing Assistance For Veterans
Housing assistance for homeless Veterans and their families is available through several federal programs.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and VA Supportive Housing Program (HUD-VASH) partner to
provide permanent, supportive housing and treatment services for homeless Veterans.
HUD allocated nearly 38,000 “Housing Choice” vouchers across the country, which allows Veterans and their families to live
in market rate rental housing while VA provides case management services. A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord
directly by the local public housing authority on behalf of the participating Veteran. The Veteran then pays the difference
between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program. The case management
services facilitate the attainment of the Veteran’s recovery goals. The HUD-VASH Program is for the most vulnerable
Veterans, and provides special services for women Veterans, those recently returning from combat zones, and Veterans
with disabilities.

HOW TO DEAL WITH ANGER IN YOURSELF
Not by ignoring or suppressing it. Experience and science have shovvn repeatedly how poorly those strategies work.
Once anger rises past a certain point, it seems to require satisfactory expression to be diffused. That is, it must be
expelled in a way that feels good—in a way that is literally emptying. The goal then would be to expel it in a way that
does as little damage as possible. How one does this depends on why the anger one feels is rising in the first place.
Anger aimed at harming oneself. Depression is almost certainly the cause and should be identified and treated.
Anger aimed at achieving control. Ask yourself why you feel out of control. Fear is a common reason. Actually
lacking control is another. Anger is, fortunately or unfortunately, often a good strategy to regain control in the shortterm, and easier to feel than many of the emotions that trigger it. But as it ultimately remains an expression of our
unfulfilled need to control (if we actually had control, we wouldn’t get angry), far better to identify a means to
actually provide us real control rather than the illusion of it. When such control isn’t possible, a next best option is to
fully recognize what feelings being out of control leads to first, before anger; fear and uncertainty. If we can identify
these feelings each time they arise, we at least have a chance to deal more constructively with them-or at least more
consciously.
Anger aimed to make us feel powerful. Control isn’t exactly the issue here. It’s more that we feel small and insecure
and have stumbled upon anger as an effective means to feel bigger than those around us. Recognizing this is what’s
going on empowers us again to interrupt the generation of anger and instead to deal with the feelings of insecurity.
Anger that arises from insecurity is particularly efficient at destroying intimate relationships.
Anger at injustice. How best to discharge this anger? Take action to correct the injustice, whether committed against
yourself or someone else.
Of course, anger may arise for more than one of these reasons at one time. Anger at an injustice committed against
you (as opposed to someone else) may intermingle with anger aimed at achieving control (as an expression of a wish
for control that could have prevented the injustice from being committed in the first place). Anger aimed at yourself
for being powerless in a given situation may intermingle with anger at someone else as a way to achieve the very
power you lack.
HOW TO DIFFUSE ANGER IN OTHERS
The goal here is two-fold, your ability to carry out the second being dependent on your ability to carry out the first;
Remain in control of yourself. When you find yourself on the receiving end of someone’s anger, they’re either trying
to control you in some way or make you feel small so they can feel big. Or you’ve done them some kind of wrong.
You should seek to understand which of the three it is. You must tell yourself that anger is their strategy and has
nothing to do with you at all, unless of course you really have committed an injustice against them, in which case
you should make amends.
Help them discharge their anger in a way that feels satisfying without causing harm. Responding to anger with
anger rarely accomplishes anything positive. If you remain in control of yourself so that another’s anger neither
manipulates you nor makes you feel small, you have a chance to help them deal with the real issue that triggered
their anger in the first place. What tactics work to accomplish this?
Validate their anger. Resisting a person’s anger, getting angry back at them, denying that their anger is justified all do
nothing more than inflame it. Even if their anger isn’tjustified in your mind, what would convincing them of that
accomplish? It likely wouldn’t give them control over it. Feelings require no justification to be felt.
Apologize. I told my patient how sorry I was he had such an unpleasant experience. It wasn’t my fault, but in
commiserating with him, I was able to validate his anger.
Help turn their anger into language. Get them to express in words, rather than in harmful action, just how angry
they are. This is often an effective way to help them discharge their anger in a way that feels satisfying.
Get angry with them. Get even angrier than they are. Transform yourself from the object of their anger into their
partner in feeling the same anger as they.
Though buried deeply, fear was the obvious cause of my patient’s anger, an emotion with which I could far more
easily sympathize. As he’d already calmed down by the time he came to see me (he’d satisfactorily discharged a lot of
his anger already over the phone), I spent most of my time validating his anger and attempting to address its
underlying cause. He never would acknowledge he was afraid, however, which made me worry there would be
similar future outbursts (there were), but having fully apprehended its cause, his anger never again intimidated me.
He was ultimately diagnosed with lymphoma, endured several cycles of chemotherapy, and was eventually cured. Of
his lymphoma, that is.

The State of Connecticut passed legislation to assist homeless persons who are residents of
authorized shelters or transitional housing programs in obtaining a State of Connecticut
Department of Motor Vehicles issued non-driver photo identification:
Sec. 11 h. identity cards. (a) Any person who does not possess a valid motor vehicle operators license may apply to
the Department of Motor Vehicles for an identity card. The application for an identity card shall be accompanied by
the birth certificate of the applicant or a certificate of identification of the applicant issued and authorized for such
use by the Department of Correction. Such application shall include; (1) The applicants name; (2) the applicant’s
address; (3) whether the address is permanent or temporary; (4) the applicant’s date of birth; (5) notice to the
applicant that false statements on such application are punishable under section 53a- I 57b; and (6) such other
pertinent information as the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles deems necessary. A fee of twenty-two dollars and fifty
cents shall be paid to the department upon issuance to the applicant of an identity card which contains a picture of
the applicant and specifies the applicants height, sex and eye color. The applicant shall sign the application in the
presence of an official of the department. The commissioner may waive the fee for any applicant who has voluntarily
surrendered such applicant’s motor vehicle operator’s license or whose license has been refused by the commissioner
pursuant to subdivision (4) of subsection (e) of section 14-36. The commissioner may waive the fee for any applicant
who is a resident of a homeless shelter or other facility for homeless persons. The commissioner shall adopt
regulations, in accordance with the provisions of chapter 54, to establish the procedure and qualifications for the
issuance of an identity card to any such homeless applicant.
(b) An identity card shall expire within a period not exceeding six years from the date of issuance of such card.
Each such card shall indicate its date of expiration. Any person who holds an identity card shall be notified by the
commissioner before its expiration and may renew such card in such manner as the commissioner shall prescribe
upon payment of a fee of twenty-two dollars and fifty cents.
(c) A distinctive identity card shall be issued to any applicant less than twenty-one years of age. The identity card
shall contain a statement that it is issued subject to the same verification of the applicant’s identity as required for the
issuance of a motor vehicle operator’s license. The card may thereafter be exhibited to establish the age and identity
of the person to whom it was issued.
(d) The Commissioner of Motor Vehicles, in consultation with the Liquor Control Commission, shall adopt
regulations in accordance with the provisions of chapter 54 to carry out the purposes of this section and section 3086.
(e) Any person who misrepresents his age or practices any other deceit in the procurement of an identity card, or
uses or exhibits an identity card belonging to any other person, shall be fined not more than fifty dollars or
imprisoned not more than thirty days or both.
Under this program the DMV waives the normal application fee one time within the 6 year
life of an ID cards expiration and only when the shelter or transitional housing program
staff completes the proper form (DMV form B-230) accompanied by required
documentation.

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life of all Hamden residents by providing educational, recreational
and social services through coordinated or direct services.
-
We enable Hamden residents to acquire or maintain self-sufficiency by providing the assistance and
support systems to function independently as productive members of the community.
Located at the ML. Keefe Community Center in the heart of southern Hamden, Community Services has a
staff of five full-time employees. In addition to Town funding, Community Services received a grant from the
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which allows the department to assist residents in
avoiding evictions, foreclosures and utility service interruptions.
While Community Services is best known for providing emergency services to people in need through its
food bank, shelter to families displaced by fire, or assistance to families facing heating emergencies during
the cold winter months, the department also engages in a number of proactive activities designed to give
residents the tools to succeed and improve themselves, including a very successful workforce training
program, collaborative efforts with local arts groups to provide artistic programming, and providing
scholarships to children unable to afford to attend local summer camps.
Community Services encourages residents to take part in parent-learning programs funded through a grant
from the Graustein Foundation. Parents and Communities for Kids (PACK) offer arts workshops and cultural
performances in urban communities, providing opportunities for children and parents to learn together in
an informal setting.
Collaboration and Cooperation
The Keefe Center, a multipurpose, inter-generational facility that provides all of the services necessary to
assist clients in one location, provides fertile ground for identification of a variety of areas where families
may benefit from assistance.
Community Services, like all agencies operating at the Keefe Center, believes that addressing individual
needs through intensive case management is more effective than simply administering programs.
Attention to the “whole person” helps Community Services staff focus on the needs of individuals and their
families, to ensure that clients are always treated with dignity and respect, and guarantee that each client
receives individualized attention.
As resources continue to shrink and demand services continues to grow, the Community Services
Department sees enhanced cooperation and collaboration with all service agencies as the most important
avenue toward continued success.
Jobs Resource Center
The Job Resource Center counselor works with clients one-on-one to build their resumes, strengthen
interviewing and computer skills and search job markets. The Job Resource Center is open Monday,
Wednesday, and Friday from 1:30 to 4:30pm, and is located on the third floor of the Hamden Government
Center.
To make an appointment call Sue Hutchinson at (203) 287-2647.

The Vocational Rehabilitation Program
The goal of the Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Program is to assist individuals with significant physical
and mental disabilities to prepare for, obtain and maintain employment. Through the provision of
individualized services, persons with disabilities who are eligible for vocational rehabilitation are
supported in planning for and achieving their job goals.
To be eligible for the VR program, an individual must have a significant physical or mental condition
which poses a substantial barrier to employment, and must require VR services in order to prepare
for, find and succeed in employment.
The vocational rehabilitation program serves persons with all disabilities except legal blindness.
Individuals with legal blindness are served by the Board of Education and Services for the Blind; their
website is located at wwwbesb.state.ct.us.
The vocational rehabilitation program is supported by a combination of state and federal funds.
To learn more about the vocational rehabilitation program, go to
html?src=p
Individuals who receive Social Security disability benefits have increased incentives to work while
maintaining some or all of their benefits. Benefits Counseling is available to assist individuals to
assess the impact returning to work will have on their disability benefits. More information on work
incentives programs is available by contacting the Connect to Work Center.
The Bureau of Rehabilitation Services (BRS) provides vocational rehabilitation (VR) services to assist
Connecticut residents with significant disabilities to find and keep employment. Please review the Job
Seeker_publication for an overview of our services.
If you would like to apply for VR services, you must make arrangements with the BRS office nearest
to where you live to file the actual application in person. (you may view a sample application on-line
In the office, these forms will be in a slightly different
format, but they will contain the same information).
-
You may contact the office where you will apply to learn more about what services may be available
and what you must do if you are eligible for services. You will also learn if you need an appointment
to meet with a counselor or attend an orientation meeting.
If you are eligible, a counselor will help you develop an employment plan based on your needs and
abilities and will help arrange whatever services are needed to achieve your employment goal.
