Supported Employment

Do the barriers of employment or education seem insurmountable such as mental Health barriers like confusion or disorientation, physical barriers like back problems or heart conditions, logistical barriers like transportation or location, legal barriers like felonies or misdemeanors, or other barriers in life? Sometimes job seeking and education training can seem overwhelming, like putting together a very important puzzle. You don't have to do it alone.

Supported Employment staff can help you focus on your attributes, skills, sand interests. Everyone has their own set of strengths that can help them achieve employment. You may have had some problems along the way, but you can change your circumstances and attitude when looking for employment or pursuing education/training.

Supported Employment is designed to help support individuals as they choose, seek, and maintain successful employment.  Caring staff offer individual and group interventions, crisis management, assisting individuals to develop communication, relationship skills, and coping strategies along with providing advocacy, assessment, linkage, monitoring, and support.
