Community Based Day Supports

Community Based Day Supports is a program of supports designed to help individuals enrich their lives and enjoy a full range of community activities.  It also helps people prepare for work and develop skills in personal, social and community activities.

Supported Employment

The Supported Employment program bolsters the lives of our adults with disabilities by helping them train for and secure meaningful jobs at businesses in the community. The program offers vocational assessment job readiness, and work skills training. Other program benefits include:

  • Matching each individual to a position based on skills and interests
  • One-on-one coaching and on-site support as needed
  • An established work schedule from as little as one to 40+ hours per week
  • Assistance with resumes, preparing for interviews and researching job openings

Supported Employment is funded by the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services. Local companies that hire supported employment candidates often receive substantial federal tax credits.

This community-based program helps adults with disabilities find and maintain employment at area businesses. The program offers vocational assessment, job readiness, and work skills training.
