What is Supported Employment?
Supported Employment is based on a nationally recognized model known as Individual Placement and Support (or IPS). This model is highly successful in helping individuals, like you, find and keep jobs. Supported Employment works to find you competitive employment with a focus on career development. Once a job is found, we work with you and your employer to provide support as long as it is needed and to help make sure you achieve your career goals.
