Manufacturing, Healthcare and Information Technology are three promising Career Pathways for Kentuckians seeking training and employment in jobs that are in-demand, pay family-sustaining wages, and have opportunities for advancement.  
Project CASE was created to increase the numbers of individuals with disabilities who are training and working in these fields by finding and/or developing flexible and innovative training and postsecondary approaches to skill attainment. Project CASE’s six
Career Pathway Coordinators will increase the capacity of Kentucky’s Office of Vocational Rehabilitation and Office for the Blind in reaching employers who can provide work experiences such as job shadowing, internships, apprenticeships and, ultimately, job placement in these pathways.  
Through Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) grant funding, Project CASE will provide direct services to eligible individuals in the 7 counties of Metro Louisville (KentuckianaWorks) and 23 counties in Eastern Kentucky (Eastern Kentucky Concentrated Employment Program- EKCEP).    
Grant funding provided through the Rehabilitation Services Administration, Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, Department of Education:  Career Pathways for Individuals with Disabilities.

The Project CASE grant helped to provide the resources needed to build an accessible, high quality training program in Culinary Arts, customized for blind and visually impaired consumers. Jefferson Community and Technical College and their Workforce Solutions program have been strong partners in creating the curriculum and adapting their training kitchen and teaching methods to provide the needed skill sets for individuals interested in pursuing a career pathway in food services through the Kentucky Business Enterprises program. Many thanks to our excellent workforce partners at JCPS:  Chef Marc Lewis and Tiffany Coleman! “Workforce Solutions provides thousands of hours of innovative training each year to some of the largest employers in our region, so this partnership was a natural fit,” said Handy. “It is our duty to this community to help grow and enhance a skilled workforce that and we are proud work with Secretary Ramsey to answer that challenge.”
