Project Summary AMJaMB proposes to expand the work of The Call Connection in the following ways: 1) Build upon its customer base through advertising in the community at-large which will increase consumer employees from 6 employees to 10 within the first year. According to the 2010 Census of a population of 26,218 living in the Town of Paradise, 7,131 (27.2cro) people are 65 years of age or older making The Call Connection is an attractive free service to people that are aging and lonely. 2) Develop a mentorship program for high school students with Paradise Unified School District and other school districts within Butte County that will support students with disabilities in preparing for work in the community using The Call Connection model. The mentoring program will be known as JAMMB'n.

They will have procedures to follow. If additional services or assistance is needed, the consumers that are employed through this program will follow up with the appropriate authorities, emergency medical personnel, and the regional center service coordinator, as needed.
