Supported & Customized Employment

Supported Employment

Utilizing a traditional job placement model KenCrest’s supported employment supports provides paid employment outcomes. Supported employment opportunities are made available to all age groups and ability levels.

Customized Employment

Careers for Adults with DisabilitiesThe customized employment process is a flexible blend of strategies, services, and supports designed to increase employment options for job seekers with complex needs through voluntary negotiation of the employment relationship.

KenCrest staff work with business partners to identify a business’s unmet needs and help them realize how a job candidate can benefit their business goals. This results in a creative, customized work opportunity.

Funding

Supported and customized employment funding can be supported via the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR), consolidated waiver, person/family waiver or school and/or a combination of these.

Innovation

Customized Employment Opportunities for Disabled AdultsWe actively pursue grant funding as well as other alternative funding streams. This allows KenCrest to be able to provide a greater number of innovative and creative “out of the box” employment opportunities that are otherwise not funded by traditional funding sources.

Accredited, Experienced Job Coaches

All of KenCrest job coaches possess an accreditation certificate in The Discovery Process and customized employment, and/or are certified employment support professionals. This ensures job candidates receive a quality level of support backed by the most innovative job training and ongoing supports available in the industry.

Network of Business Partners

One of the key factors in our successful adult employment programs is the excellent relationships between our job candidates, the KenCrest team and our local business partners.
