How can I meet staff and find out more about eQuality?
If you are interested in finding out more about eQuality we encourage you to arrange a meeting and/or tour with staff. Attending a tour in no way obligates you to choose eQuality, but allows you to compare programs and make a well-informed decision about your future. To arrange a tour, please call Joan Klukken Keprios at 612-245-5792.
How does eQuality get paid for services it provides?
eQuality bills Hennepin County or Medical Assistance directly, depending on your funding source. Your Hennepin County Social Worker will authorize the service.
How will I get to and from work?
eQuality utilizes Metro Mobility to transport associates to and from work. Transportation during the program day, for fieldtrips, etc. is provided by agency minivans. eQuality pays for all transportation-related costs.
What if I wish to work part-time?
Many eQuality program associates choose to work part-time. These individuals generally work mornings and participate in recreational and educational activities during afternoons. These activities include work-outs at local community centers, fieldtrips, environmental education at the North Mississippi Interpretive Center, theater/acting, arts and crafts, etc.
What if I would like to work independently in the community?
eQuality Job Coordinators work with individuals to seek independent jobs. They work to develop resumes, improve interviewing skills, complete applications, and develop job-hunting strategies. After an individual succeeds in getting a job, the Job Coordinator assists with orientation, training, and ongoing support.
What is the admission procedure?
If you decide that you would like to attend eQuality you should make your County Social Worker aware of your decision. He or she will send a formal referral to eQuality, which will begin the process. eQuality staff will notify you of your acceptance to the program. Our staff will contact your interdisciplinary team to arrange an intake meeting date, and you will choose a starting date. If you are planning ahead for a June graduation, you should confirm with eQuality staff that a place will be held for you.
