Narrative

Meaningful Days is a supported employment service that provides person-centered support so people with disabilities can succeed in independent competitive employment. Our Employment Specialists take the time to understand clients’ personal interests, skills, and support needs in order to make successful job matches with community employers. The staff’s relationship with a number of employers has been essential to the success of current clients on the job and has led to opportunities for other clients.
Services include:

  • Assessment of skills
  • Job searching
  • Job development and placement
  • Intensive initial job coaching
  • Follow-along support to assist the individual in maintaining successful employment and positive employer relationships

JF&CS is able to provide this service through DDS funding, private pay, and private donations.
