I look forward to coming to work every day, not something that can be said for all jobs and employers! I feel supported as a professional and as a person with a life outside of work. I appreciate an environment that fosters professional development and personal growth and encourages me to draw on my individual talents. I have had great mentors who helped me to grow in my career and navigate the challenges of this important work. HCRS staff have a sense of humor that helps us get through the stressful situations that arise, with great collaboration and teamwork!

Employment Services

Employment ServicesOur Supported Employment Program assists persons with severe or significant disabilities in obtaining and maintaining community integrated competitive employment. A broad range of supports are offered based on the needs identified in a client’s Employment Plan. Supported employment encourages people to work within their communities. The mission of the HCRS Supported Employment Program is to promote work, social interaction, and integration.

Some of the specific services offered by our program are work assessment, on the job training, follow up training, job coaching, and job carving. Our Employment Specialists work with area businesses and the individual to secure positions in the community that are a good fit for both the person and the business.

In order to qualify for our Supported Employment programs at HCRS, a person needs to meet the criteria for Developmental Services (see Intake and Referral). A person may receive Supported Employment services through their waiver or through a grant from Vocational Rehabilitation.
