To promote independence and self-sufficiency by delivering an array of exceptional community based employment supports.
To be a recognized leader in the design and delivery of community-based
employment services and supports
Our staff adheres to APSE International’s “Ethical Guidelines for Professionals in Supported Employment.” We embrace all of the values and quality standards expressed in this document
. Below are some of the values that guide our day-to-day work with job seekers:
We believe in providing exceptional service to each and every customer. It is our goal to serve people in the most efficient and effective manner possible. Initial contacts are made within 24 hours and intakes are conducted within 5 days of receipt of referral.
The individual receiving services is always the central driving force in all of our planning efforts, service delivery options, and employment decisions. All job placement decisions are ultimately made by the job seeker. It is our job to provide reliable information about the quality of the job and the employer, so that an informed choice can be made.
All job seekers are asked to tell us about their personal interests, skills, aptitudes, and life goals. Family and friends are welcomed and encouraged to contribute. These personal goals and individual strengths form the basis for the employment services that we deliver.
It is our goal to develop jobs that match the personal interests of our customers and meet the needs of prospective employers. We represent our customers as capable, qualified job candidates who are ready to contribute to the workforce.
Our goal, as trainers, is to fit naturally into the work environment. We attempt to identify and use all natural supports to help the new employee become comfortable, competent, and productive in their new job.
