Supported Employment

Supported Employment provides employment assistance to individuals that want to find and/or keep competitive employment in their community.

When individuals have meaningful work, they develop pride, self-respect, and a sense of belonging to their community. Supported Employment satisfies needs on two fronts — for the individual seeking employment and for the employer in need of dependable workers.
