Why Employment Services Are Vital for Adults with Disabilities

Find Meaningful Employment

We believe that everyone should be able to find meaningful employment and that includes individuals living with intellectual or developmental disabilities. With our employment services, we help the adults we serve find work that enhances their skills, allows them to do something they enjoy, and helps them become more independent. 

Advocate for the Adults We Serve

Not only do we help individuals find valuable jobs, but we also advocate on their behalf while they are employed. We focus on helping the individuals we serve be successful by providing on-the-job training, communicating with their employers, and ensuring they’re in a healthy work environment.

Partner with Local Employers

We are glad to partner with local employers to find suitable work for adults living with developmental or intellectual disabilities. We teach the adults we serve how to perform the job for which they are hired, plus, we check in with employers to make sure quality work is being performed. Not only do we assist local businesses in finding qualified employees, but we also give adults in our care a foundation of customized support throughout their employment. 

Receive Training & Support

No one goes into a job unprepared when working with RISE Services, Inc. Arizona. Our job coaches offer job-based training so the adults we serve are well-prepared for their new jobs. This includes helping adults complete job applications, practicing for job interviews, teaching how to dress appropriately for work, and assisting in social skills while working with fellow employees. We also provide on-the-job training and remain with them throughout their employment.

Learn Valuable Life Skills

One of the leading benefits of our employment services is the valuable life skills training we offer. The abilities adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities learn will be helpful for them whether they are working, spending time with friends, or attending a community event. This training is customized to the needs of each individual and may include communication skills, worksite acclimation, money management, and relationship building.
