Adult Supported Employment

Individuals may participate in our Supported Employment Services after mastering pre-requisite skills in teaching programs provided by Day Habilitation and Vocational Services and Work Readiness.

This program currently enables over 60 individuals to find jobs within our community and maintain employment with the support of job coaches. Work hours vary depending upon the needs of the work site and may include weekdays, weekends, and holidays. Individuals travel to their work sites independently.
