This may include learning non-job-specific skills including volunteer work opportunities or internships.
Supported Employment - This service is designed for those that want to work and/or are employed but need continued support or skills training in order to obtain employment or maintain their employment or increase their employment status, whether additional hours or higher level positions.

Home Modifications include physical adaptations to the private residence of the service recipient or the service recipients's family (the service recipient must live with them full time to be eligible) that are necessary to ensure the health, welfare and safety of the service recipient and/or increase their level of independence in their home. This may include grab bars, widening of doors, etc.
