Today, more than ever, the job market is difficult to maneuver. 

Our Supported Employment Program helps people living with behavioral health obtain and maintain competitive employment, while at the same time, providing employers with motivated and skilled employees.  

Supported Employment provides unique benefits to both employers and job seekers. It helps employers find qualified candidates and helps employees find the quality jobs they are seeking. 

Individual Placement and Support Model


Competitive employment helps people feel better about themselves, improves self-esteem and satisfaction with life. The Individual Placement and Support model we use is the only evidence-based Supported Employment Program.

Individual Placement and Support (IPS) is a model of Supported Employment that helps people with behavioral health issues find and keep jobs, while at the same time providing employers with access to motivated and skilled employees.
