Additional Services

Contributing to the health and wealth of the community by supporting individuals to overcome barriers and achieve meaningful employment, is why we come to work each day. We do this through providing individualized services and by participating in consultative and advisory activities with state, federal, and local organizations. 

Long-Term Employment Support

After finding employment, individuals may continue to need support to successfully maintain employment. Support provided is based on individual need, and ranges from monthly phone check-ins to talk about work up to full support at the job site from a job coach. We provide these services in Cumberland and York counties through MaineCare funding under Waiver Sections 20, 21, and 29 and through a contract with Maine DHHS Office of Behavioral Health for Mental Health Long Term Employment Support.
