Employment Services

Bringing home that first paycheck is a milestone for everyone. In order to help adults with developmental disabilities to achieve this rite of passage, The Arc of Palm Beach County provides supported employment services for individuals who are seeking employment, as well as ongoing support once they are hired. The agency’s employment specialist is active in the Palm Beach County community, partnering with businesses of all types to learn about – or even help to create – positions that can be filled by individuals with developmental disabilities. At the same time, the employment specialist works with clients to ascertain their interests and skills. When a position is available that matches the individual’s abilities and desires, a connection is made.

Support services include resume writing assistance, practice interviews, job skill training and ongoing assistance on an as-needed basis once job functions have been mastered.

If you or someone you know could benefit from The Arc’s supported employment services, please call 561-842-3213 for more information.
