Supported Employment Services

 

 

Specially skilled LifeShare professionals work one-on-one with individuals who have paid employment as their primary goal, helping them to train for, obtain and maintain their jobs.

 

Individuals who receive services through our community-based day support program may also utilize our supported employment services. In addition, we can accept referrals in Rhode Island for those interested in Supported Employment services only.

 

Employment/Vocational Specialists assist the person in identifying his or her ideal job, finding several creative options within the desired field, writing a resume, scheduling and preparing for interviews, and participating in job training.

 

Our team also develops a relationship with the employer in order to build quality natural supports for the individual in the workplace. We offer assistance to the individual as long as he/she needs it.

 

LifeShare does not operate Sheltered Workshops. The individuals we support are competitively employed, working alongside people of all abilities in a variety of industries.
