Utilizing a traditional job placement model, KenCrest’s supported employment provides paid employment outcomes. Supported employment opportunities are made available to all age groups and ability levels.
The 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.
Supported and customized employment funding can be supported via the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR), consolidated waiver, person/family waiver, school, and/or a combination of these.
Accredited, Experienced Job Coaches
All 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 high-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.
