Meriden- Rushford Program

Kuhn and The Rushford Center, Inc., two local non-profit agencies, collaborated to design employment services for persons with psychiatric disabilities living in Meriden and Wallingford.  Eligible participants receive clinical services from Rushford and employment support services from Kuhn via an evidenced based model of supported employment that integrates these service components.   

Supported Employment

This program provides the individualized supports necessary for persons served to obtain and maintain competitive, community employment that meets their needs and interests.  Competitive employment is defined as earning minimum wage or higher with the participant being paid directly by the employer.  Program services are provided by an Employment Specialist (ES) and include, but are not limited to, vocational planning, job matching, job seeking skills training, job development & placement, time-limited job coaching, job counseling and, follow along support.  An Individualized Service Plan (ISP) is established for each participant to guide effective, person-centered service delivery.
