The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is a community service and work-based job training program for older Americans operated under a U.S. Department of Labor grant.  We thank the Center for Workforce Inclusion, Inc. for selecting our organization to operate SCSEP in our community.  The Curative Connections’ SCSEP program is funded by a $46.3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor.  This funding provides 90% of the support for SCSEP with the Center and its sub-grantees providing approximately $5 million in non-federal match.  The SCSEP Program is an equal opportunity program.  Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities.
