Supported Employment is a service designed to help people with intellectual disabilities participate in the competitive labor market. This service is available to any individual served in the DIDD waiver. Our program is designed to assist individuals with job coaching, job market exposure, and continual support throughout the job search process to job placement. Data indicate that individuals are three times more likely to obtain a community job placement through supported employment. Most recent job placements have been at TJ Maxx, McDonalds, Nissan, Amazon, New Horizons, Pauline & Thomas Healthcare, Inc (Clerical), Embassy Suites, and Liberty Tax. While job coaches may be preferred, they are not essential; many individuals start with job coaches but eventually require less support on the job. The job support that individuals receive through our service is critical not only to their employment success but also to their personal needs and desires. Our goal is to assist in all facets of their lives to improve the overall wellbeing of individuals served.

Most recent examples of Community Day Service include interactions in various settings including the Nashville Predators, music concerts, amusement parks, science center, horseback riding, Nashville parade, jazz festival, facility tours, DIDD focus group and university events.
