Cascadia’s Supported Employment program offers a new path for our clients — a path of independence, hope, and recovery. The support of an employment specialist can help give clients the confidence they need to move forward and create meaningful long-lasting change toward financial freedom. The work our Supported Employment team accomplishes is an important component to building a stronger community and supporting the whole lives of our clients.
Our Supported Employment Program is based on the Individual Placement and Support (IPS) model, a nationally known, evidence-based practice backed by substantial research validating its success. Individual Placement and Support (IPS) model focuses on:
- Individual strengths, skills, and abilities
- Promoting individual recovery and wellness
- Personalized and long-lasting services for long-lasting employee success.
Cascadia Employment Specialists provide personalized support throughout the job process — including the search, application, hiring processes, and transition (such as promotion and transfer).
