Supported Employment

What is Supported Employment (SE)?

Supported Employment assists people with disabilities find and keep meaningful employment within the community and helps employers find and retail skills and dedicated employees.

Why participate in Supported Employment?

When people feel good about having a job, they often see themselves in a more positive way. Work helps provide structure and routines. Having an income gives individual more choices about how and where they live.

Can an employee with a disability get the job done?

Absolutely! It is well known that every person is not right for every job, but many employers don’t realize that people with disabilities represent a diverse labor pool with a wide range of backgrounds and experience, capable of meeting or exceeding performance standards.
