Supported Employment

Our Supported Employment program helps the people accomplish their employment and educational goals. Many of our clients have struggled to secure and/or maintain competitive employment because of the nature and severity of their disability and a lack of hope that they can actually return to work after years of unemployment. Our Supported Employment program is based on the same philosophy as our Housing First model: we believe that anyone who says they want a job is "employment ready." As soon someone tells us they want to work, our Supported Employment team helps them find and retain employment in Washington, DC and the surrounding region. The team provides assistance and support throughout the job search, application, interview, and maintenance process. Our Supported Employment program also operates quarterly workshops, as well as other ongoing support services tailored to each individual's needs. We won't let anything stand in the way of someone achieving their goal of getting back to work.
