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.
