Our job developers help individuals develop resumes, fill out applications, meet employers, and obtain permanent employment in the community.
Once an individual is hired for a position, a job coach may come to the work site to help the individual learn their job tasks, develop accommodations and modifications, if needed, and ensure natural supports are in place.
After an individual is hired, a member of our staff will continue to provide support to ensure the individual is able to maintain employment independently.
