Employment is a means to higher wages and provides opportunities for people to be part of their local community. Work gives all people a greater sense of competence and self-worth.
Harc’s supported employment assists people to obtain and maintain jobs through ongoing support. We offer people opportunities to work in the community for real wages and build relationships with non-disabled co-workers. Supported Employment allows the rest of the community opportunities to experience the capabilities and contributions made by people who receive support from Harc.
When many local businesses need workers to close an employment gap, Harc can meet and fulfill that human resources niche. Our Supported Employment program supports people to find and maintain meaningful jobs in the community. It is designed to maximize the person’s potential and help employers find and retain skilled and dedicated employees.
