Supported Employment (or 'SEMP') offers person-centered support to individuals seeking competitive employment, helping individuals to explore and develop, obtain and maintain a paid, competitive job in their community. (...more)
The goal of SEMP services is to promote and develop in individuals complete independence in the competitive community workspace, through support and skill-building, taking more of a "back seat" as the individual's confidence and comfort levels increase.
Support through SEMP can include an extended paid internship through employee training programs, along with intensive and extended, long-term job coaching.
Serving adults in a variety of community-based settings, the Residential program is defined by a person-centered drive for innovation in the quest for the developmental achievement of every participant. (...more)
This drive results in homes that fully support our residents in their pursuits of their own qualities of life. Our residents cook, play sports, go to movies, pursue hobbies, and live their lives based on their own choices. These efforts adhere to the tenets of the Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) waiver, that stipulates how we must help foster as much independence as possible for each person, as desired by that person, and based upon the skills and needs of that person.
Through person-centered planning, residential staff, along with the person’s circle of support, assist each person we support in crafting an individualized plan to support their independence. By doing so, we assure comfort in the home with opportunities for meaningful community integration and experiences.
