Supported Employment

Work gives individuals served by The Center a sense of purpose, accomplishment and independence. 

And employers find a diverse workforce that includes individuals with disabilities improves workplace morale and demonstrates their ability to see the potential in every individual to their clients and customers.

Our Employment Options program provides participants with in-depth training to prepare them for employment and ongoing support once they are hired. We help individuals become independent and contributing members of the community, while providing employers with happy, productive and dedicated employees.
