RISE EMPLOYMENT SPECIALISTS

Our network of passionate Employment Specialists can help adults with developmental disabilities through every step of the employment process. Employment Specialists who are State ACRE trained and certified help adults search for appropriate, meaningful work. They also help in resume creation, interview prep, and on-the-job coaching and support.

These caring and compassionate individuals utilize our employment programs to help adults with disabilities find valuable employment based on their skills, abilities, and interests.

  • Supported Job-Based Training provides short-term support that helps our members find and be trained at a stable job.
  • Supported Employment offers hands-on, daily support for adults with more severe disabilities.
  • Customized Employment uses flexible strategies, services, and supports to increase employment options for job seekers.
  • Training & Coaching provides both new hire assistance and on-going job coaching when a disabled adult finds suitable employment.
  • Life Skills Restoration prepares our members for employment by providing valuable life skills training that will help them find and maintain meaningful long-term employment.

At RISE, we understand the perceived risk of hiring someone with a complex life situation. Certain incentives are available for employers who want to hire, train, and employ these employees.

  • The On-The-Job Training program will reimburse up to half of the wages in the first six months to help alleviate the extra costs associated with training an adult with developmental disabilities.
  • The Work Opportunity Tax Credit and Targeted Tax Credit offers yearly tax credits for employers who hire adults with developmental disabilities.
  • The Felon Bonding Program offers fidelity bonding insurance coverage to individuals with criminal histories and other high-risk job applicants who are qualified but fail to get jobs because regular commercial bonding is denied due to their backgrounds.

We teach skills that lead to independent living. While our members do not have to be enrolled in our Day Services to take advantage of our Employment Services, they may find this program helpful for building other valuable life skills. Through our Day Services, adults with developmental disabilities are able to discover and foster their personal passions within a supportive community. The goal of this program is to:

  • Help individuals develop useful work skills.
  • Assist adults in finding creative hobbies and fun activities they enjoy.
  • Help them become involved within their community.
