We help our clients Find, Get & Keep a Job

The Unicorn Supported Employment & Job Coaching Program helps match adults with IDD (intellectual developmental disabilities) with employers who are eager to have them on their team.  

Find

Our job coaches work one-on-one with each individual to determine his/her interests and the type of work that is best for them. Often employers are contacted to help carve out various tasks that could be done on a part-time basis.

Get

Once a job has been found, job coaches teach the individual the specific skills they will need to be successful at their job. 

Keep

In order to keep a job, Unicorn provides ongoing employer support. The Not-So-Secret to our Success? Job Coaches!

  • Job coaches visit the employee and his/her supervisor frequently
  • Job coaches will step in and provide additional training and support when there is change:
    • New supervisor
    • New task assignments
    • Conflict resolution
  • We also advocate and celebrate the employee's success!
    • Help them train for possible promotions
    • Advocate for raises
    • Identify safety and care issues

Let's get started!
