Supported Employment is a well-defined approach to helping people with mental illness find and keep competitive employment within their communities. The role of the employment specialist is to help clients develop new employment roles as part of the recovery process. Clients receive individualized assistance with interviewing skills, resume writing, job leads, work attire and other support as needed by the employment specialist.

Traditional vocational rehabilitation services help people with all types of significant disabilities prepare for employment consistent with their interests and abilities. These services also help people maintain their current employment, if their disability is threatening continued employment. Services such as Job Seeking Skills Training, Vocational Evaluations, Community-based Assessments and other services are provided to eligible clients according to an individualized plan that leads to gainful employment that is developed by the BVR, or OWC Counselor.

JFSA is a contract agency of the Ohio Rehabilitation Services Commission and the Ohio Bureau of Worker’s Compensation.

Suportive Employment Services are funded in part by:

Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities | Alcohol and Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services Board of Cuyahoga County | Anne Wortzman Fund for Work, Social and Recreation Skill Building for persons with Mental Disabilities
