WHAT IS SUPPORTED EMPLOYMENT?
Goodwill’s Supported Employment program is specifically designed and altered to the needs of each individual participant. Our specialists will provide tailored feedback and hands-on support to address any current issues in the workplace.
On top of 1-1 support from a workforce development specialist, participants in the program will have access to skills training to continue increasing their employability and value in the workplace. Participants will also be given financial coaching advice through our Stand By Me Financial Coaching program designed to support participants with their savings, budgeting, and bill paying!
This program is exclusively for those with disabilities so, in order to be eligible, you will need to apply to the Division of Developmental Services (DDS) and complete some forms and paperwork.
