Supported Employment

We are Passionate About Supported Employment

Employment gives people a sense of purpose and self-worth. Not only does a job have financial benefits but it also helps us connect socially. We strongly believe all individuals, regardless of disability, deserve the opportunity to be full members of their community where they can live, learn, work and play. And we are providing services to make it possible. We assist individuals looking for employment and we work hand-in-hand as needed to maintain employment.
