Rita, a program participant

Kuhn’s Supported Employment Program based at Rushford in Meriden serves adults throughout Meriden/Wallingford. The goal of the program is to place individuals in competitive jobs that meet their interests and needs within their own community.

Program participants will receive individualized services that may include, but are not limited to: job matching and vocational planning, job seeking skills training, job development, job counseling, time limited job coaching and placement follow up support. All program participants work with an Employment Specialist who is responsible for providing the vocational services. With the consent of the program participant, the Employment Specialist will work in conjunction with other service providers and interested parties to insure well-coordinated service delivery.

Program participants are expected to work in partnership with Kuhn staff to develop their individualized service plans. Participants also agree to maintain scheduled appointments with program staff and prospective employers. This partnership enhances the quality of vocational services as reflected in job matching, successful transition to competitive community employment, and job satisfaction.
