Cape Fear Group Homes launched Cape Fear Vocational Services (CVFS) in February 2012. Recognized by the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, CFVS is a Community Resource Program that serves individuals with disabilities. The program started in Guilford County and has since spread into Alamance, Caswell, Rockingham, Brunswick, Pender, and New Hanover counties with further expansion anticipated. The goal of the program is to assist participants in procuring and retaining competitive employment. The program includes completing assessments, working with participants to develop the needed skills to be successful in the workplace, assisting in developing an employment plan and supplying the needed support to complete the job effectively.
