Policies and Programs
“Supported Employment services are designed to provide community-based employment for LRS Consumers who are the most significantly disabled and require on-going support and extended services to maintain employment.
 
Supported Employment significantly expands the options available for persons with the most significant disabilities to achieve and maintain integrated, competitive employment in the community. Supported Employment requires the ongoing services of other organizations and/or natural supports such as co-workers, family, friends, etc. and ongoing extended services when LRS services end; therefore, it is important to consider and include the participation of other individuals and organizations beginning in the planning process.”
