Employment Services

Supported Employment - allows participants to work in competitive job environments while earning a paycheck. It includes assisting our participants with job search and placement and is conducted in a variety of work settings.  Our participants are integrated alongside co-workers without disabilities to perform their assigned work duties.  Supervision, employment supports, and training from our staff are provided to sustain work in the community.

 

 

Group Supported Employment  - provides employment supports to a group of individuals who work in the community, performing various tasks while earning wages. Each group has a Supervisor who assists them at the job site and ensures tasks are performed to the employer’s expectations.  In our Mobile Work Crews, a group of participants work in a variety of locations and travel to a number of work sites during the day under the continuous supervision of an Employment Specialist (Job Coach).

 

 

Individualized Supported Employment - is a supported employment placement strategy in which an Employment Specialist (Job Coach) places a participant into competitive employment through a job discovery process, provides training and support and then gradually reduces time and assistance at the work site.  This service may also include development and on-going support for self-employment.  Working with the participant, this assistance consists of:

  • Identifying potential business opportunities

  • Developing a business plan

  • Identifying supports that are necessary for the operation of the business

  • Counseling and guidance once the business has been launched​

 

 

Individualized Day Supports Vocational - provides supports to participants tailored to his/her specific needs related to the acquisition, improvement, and retention of skills and abilities to be competitively employed.
