Our  Community Programs

Individual Supported Employment

Our Individual Supported Employment program supports people with disabilities in their efforts to obtain and maintain employment in the general workforce. We work with candidates to understand their hopes, dreams, and goals. We work as a team to determine their strengths and skills and provide resume and coaching services. From the start of the job search process to continuing development and retention, we are here to guide our clients.

Need a DEI initiative that works? We match talent to opportunity.

Are you looking for employees with the right stuff? We know that each job is individualized and do not take a one-size-fits-all approach. We aim to get a win for employers and employees alike. Contact us to learn if we have the best match for your current employment needs.

We don’t “place” you just anywhere.
We help you find the career or community that matches your skills and interests!

Finding belonging and inclusion can be difficult. What if there were someone to give you the support and guidance you need to succeed?

We understand the challenges facing individuals with disabilities today. Because many businesses and organizations lack awareness of how to work with people with disabilities, opportunity for work, let alone one-on-one support and individualized training, can be scarce. Whether you are looking to launch your career, need assistance finding a short-term job, or just want to be more involved in the community, our Employment & Community Programs will help you reach your goals.
