Supported/Independent Employment

Members who have moved into the Supported/Independent Employment Program receive individualized attention from a job coach; regular assessment of career goals; training in résumé writing, interview techniques, and employee relations; and help in securing a job.

Job coaches help members find their own jobs in the community. Members receive as much or as little support as they need. Their job coaches check in to make sure everything is going well. After a member gets a job, job coaches are available to help them mediate with supervisors, to assist with additional training, or simply to serve as behind-the-scenes support.

Members are also invited to monthly employment support dinners after work hours that offer an educational program, networking, and peer support.

Supported/Independent Employment:
  • Provides assistance to members searching for permanent full-time or part-time positions.
  • Provides unlimited off-the-job support to members to enable them to retain the position.
  • Provides job coaches to help members identify jobs of interest, prepare their résumés, practice interviewing skills, take them to fill out applications, discuss with them whether or not to disclose their illness to their employer, and provide on-going support.
