From the Paper:

"The small staff structure for this program will enable strong flexibility and contribute to good communication between staff. A small staff can also be posed for rapid adaptability as program funding fluctuates over time. Each member of the staff will need to be accountable and accessible to clients, board members and participating employers in the community. Understanding the needs of each client and customizing the program for their goals and abilities will be critical for success."
