Community Employment Services

Lynndale Community Employment Program assists its participants through informed choices to acquire jobs and maintain job placement in the community.  Individuals are trained in every aspect of their jobs, and natural supports are developed at the job site and in the community.  Job support is given, based on individual needs/preferences.  When the persons served meet the exit criteria, they are transitioned out of  Lynndale services.  A post-employment follow-up is done at three months and nine months.

Employment is offered with Lynndale through individual placements as well as enclaves and mobile work crews.  Persons working independently in the community earn at least minimum wages.  The community employer pays these wages directly to the person.  Persons working in Lynndale enclaves and mobile work crews earn wages that are less than minimum wage.  These wages are determined by the amount of work completed and the accuracy of the work done using a formula provided by the Georgia Department of Labor.  Lynndale pays these wages to the person on a monthly basis.

Currently Lynndale, Inc. has 40 people employed in Augusta businesses.
