The Supported Employment Program secures paid employment (full time and part time), and provides job training and support for adults with intellectual disabilities. The program helps individuals enhance their economic self-sufficiency, self-esteem, and integration into the community. Bona fide competitive employment is available as individual placements with support services by a job coach gradually fading as the individual becomes more proficient on the job. It is also available as work crews, in which a crew of up to four individuals is supervised and trained by a job coach 100% of the time. Supported employment requires work hours of no less than 20 hours a week, and can include employment of 40 hours a week, with benefits matching those of the non-disabled workers at
the job site.
