Build Your Workforce & Strengthen Your Workplace 


As a Living Opportunities business partner, you can hire our Job Candidates. Through our customized services, we help identify your business’ specific employment needs and match them with the skill sets of our Living Opportunities candidates. By connecting your employment opportunities with our candidate’s abilities, we provide a WIN-WIN partnership for everyone.

We specialize in tailoring part-time positions ranging from 8 – 20 hours per week which allow efficient redistribution of tasks and existing workloads.  Our workplace partners often find that they are able to save time and money by hiring part time employees through Living Opportunities. Through our diverse talent pool, we will match a qualified individual to fit your specific employment needs and unique business culture.

Our services include customized training and ongoing support provided by our Living Opportunities employment specialists – at no cost to your company. Your business pays only the hourly wage of the person that you hire, plus payroll taxes.

By partnering with Living Opportunities, you will gain responsible, creative, productive employees who in turn will gain a sense of accomplishment and pride in the work they do with your company.

Together we can provide a WIN-WIN partnership.

Watch just a few of our success stories


Living Opportunities works with you to identify tasks within your business that will become the job for the Living Opportunities candidate. The result will be a comprehensive job description that meets your expectations.

Job candidates who enter into Living Opportunities’ Supported Employment Services are involved in varied and in-depth work experiences that are based on the individual’s interests and skill sets. This allows us to match your company with a qualified and effective employee who will enjoy being a productive member of your team.

Our qualified Supported Employment Specialists will first learn the job duties themselves, per your requirements. These mentors then provide complete training for the candidate until the new employee meets your standards and is able to be successful on their own.

Continuous training, support and follow-up by our Employment Specialists team are included in our services, at no cost to your business. We will work to assure that the employee’s job performance is maintained. At your request, we can also expand and refine specific job duties.
