The owners of Tri-More Community are getting ready to open their doors in January.
A new business that helps adults with developmental disabilities find jobs is getting ready to open its doors in Dayton.
Tri-More Community leased a 5,577-square-foot office near the Dayton Mall and tentatively plans to open Jan. 4.
Managing partner Nancy Justice said she, her husband Keith, and managing partners Jennelle Bertke and Amy Skaggs are looking to start the day program in response to changes in the funding model for such programs.
Under a new state law, adults with developmental disabilities have more choices for day programs beyond programs run by counties. She said prior to the law change, the majority of clients attended programs run by county boards of developmental disabilities.
Justice said she is starting Tri-More Community during the beginning phases of the changes, with the hope of serving clients who now have more choices for programs.
"That's why it makes it such a good time to be starting this. Over the next five years, 80 percent of clients have to be in privately run programs," she said.
Justice said the partners hope to have 15 clients by the end of 2016. She said a good client-to-employee ratio is 5-1.
The service will work to help clients from Warren, Butler, Montgomery and Greene counties find employment in the community.
"We'll be teaching job skills and doing assessments to see what kind of job they would like to do. Everything is tailor made for the individual," she said.
Justice and Bertke have almost 40 years of combined experience in their field, with Justice having worked in education and at adult day programs and Bertke having experience in vocational programs. Skaggs is on track to graduate from Wright State University this semester with a degree in rehabilitation services. Justice and Bertke are also Wright State alumni.
The group is holding an open house Saturday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at its 8963 Kingsridge Dr. headquarters, near the Interstate 75 and Interstate 675 interchange.
Ron Beech, of Commercial Realty Associates, who brokered the deal, said the location made the building a good fit for the business.
"It's a central location for going out and working in the community," he said.
