Community Services (Supported Employment)

Employing people with disabilitiesCosmopolitan Community Services is a non-profit program that provides supported employment opportunities for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Supported employment is a placement at a business where the individuals in the program are supported with the guidance of an Employment Support Worker. This program focuses on teaching and helping the individuals in the program how to be employed in their community. Participants learn job skills such as how to interact with co-workers, job safety, and accountability to their work. Employing people with disabilities is our primary objective.

Participants in the Community Services program are assessed to ensure that their employment placements and learning activities reflect their needs, goals and abilities. On-going training is provided to enhance social skills and work skills to maintain employment.
