How Do I Access Supported Employment Services?

Several factors which influence whether or not Assets can accept you as a client include:

  • Does your disability fit our mission?
  • Do we currently have the expertise and resources to meet your needs?
  • Do you have the desire to obtain employment and work with us to successfully achieve this goal?
  • Can we determine a funding mechanism to support your services?
  • Will you be 18 or older by the time we initiate services?

When you inquire about Assets’ Supported Employment Service, we will ask questions to help us determine if we are the best provider to meet your needs. Funding and staff resources are critical to providing quality services. Assets ensure both are in place before initiating services.
