What is Supported Employment?

The Supported Employment Program trains and coaches qualified, hard working employees for businesses and organizations. The Arc provides continued on-site job coaching and support as needed at no cost to the business.

Benefits for businesses:

Over 40 businesses and organizations throughout the Washington, D.C. Metro Area employ people through The Arc’s program because the benefits just make sense.

  • Targeted Jobs Tax Credit during the employee’s first year of employment.
  • Zero expense for recruitment and training.
  • Added support from the employee’s job coach at zero expense to the employer.
  • In some cases, a sub-minimum wage based on a person’s productivity capacity.
  • Implementation of affirmative action policies.
  • Contribution to the community by turning an unemployed consumer into a hardworking, responsible taxpayer.

How does it work?

The Arc Supported Employment Program trains people in areas that match their skills and interests. Job coaches provide initial onsite training and continued support as needed.

People typically find employment through one of three paths:

Individual placement— short-term on the job training and periodic follow along services for an individual employee. Click here to view resumes of people looking for individual placement in an office setting.

Enclave employment—a small group of people who need on-going job coaching services on a daily basis. People work at the same facility and share a job coach.

Mobile crews—a small group of workers and job coaches function as a unified team to complete a contracted job.
