evolve is a comprehensive program developed to assist the Basco/ Michigan State University/ Michigan Rehabilitation Services Collaboration as well as various Intermidiate School Districts with the development of students with disabilities, enabling them to successfully navigate their career pathway, with skills, internship and career placement.

respire focuses on vocational training, and wrap around career services- enabling returning citizens to become self- sufficient. We have developed a comprehensive program that seeks to reduce and/or eliminate barriers while working with Probation/Parole agents, caseworkers, and various community partners to ensure success. Increased employment rates of returning citizens leads to many positives, including:
Re-enter the mainstream of society.
Gain enhanced self-esteem.
Pay more taxes.
Have more spending power -- contributing to the health of our economy.
Reduced welfare and institutionalization costs.
Increased taxpayer savings of millions of dollars.
