     Omni Advocacy Services, Inc.       
      
Omni Advocacy Services is a consumer-focused, results-based, supportive employment and community inclusion program.  Each step of the process is designed to build on the last.  Each goal set and met is an investment in the individual, the O.A.S team, and the community.

All Omni programs are designed to work as building blocks.  Each step of the program is designed to increase the participant’s self-esteem, faith in their own abilities, as well as ties to their community.  O.A.S. IS NOT a “one size fits all" program.  The program is consumer focused and directed, therefore; all services and program models can and will be modified to suit each individual and their needs.

What sets us apart?  There are several other organizations that provide employment services.  One of the many things that set O.A.S. apart is the advocacy element that is done in conjunction with the employment services.  O.A.S. does intensive case management and care coordination as a part of its employment services.  There is not a “cookie cutter” program model that all participants must fit into.  As a part of the intake and assessment process we do a "needs and barriers" assessment and work with the participant to develop an I.P.P. (Individual Program Plan). This program plan identifies all barriers, including but not limited to: housing, clothing, transportation, mental health needs, legal concerns, absence of an adequate support system, employability skills needed, etc., and includes a plan for addressing the aforementioned barriers.  

Every participant of the O.A.S. program will receive as much or as little case management and job readiness training as he or she needs based on the information received at the time of intake and assessment.  The program is designed and intended to be very individualized.  O.A.S. has many established, long-standing relationships with area employers, while continuously cultivating new relationships.

Who does Omni provide services for/to?  Omni Advocacy provides services to individuals with barriers through and by direct referral. Referrals are received from any Kansas or Missouri State or Federal Agency (DFS, FSD, VR, DOC, DVA).  Omni assists individuals with barriers to gain successful employment and community living skills.

Advocacy is not just a part of our name.  Omni is dedicated to being a part of the solution and is actively involved in several advocacy and policy making organizations. Omni's CEO has been a registered lobbyist for over a decade and presents to the House of Representatives annually. Omni's CEO frequently does speaking engagements and presentations to various national organizations and political groups on industry best practices, standards and other topics as they relate to the population that we serve.
