Aspire's supported employment program works with individuals to help them identify and reach their vocational goals. Services are highly individualized, matching each person's interests and skills to find and maintain the best employment match.
To ensure successful employment, a wide variety of supports are provided based on individual needs and funding sources. These supports include job search skills such as resume writing, application assistance and interview preperation. Once employed, individuals receive ongoing help with work skill development, communication training and other supports as needed. Perhaps the most significant measures of success are increased confidence and self-esteem as well as individual community connections made through employment.
We currently support individuals at a wide variety of work sites. These sites include restaurants, retail, law offices, not-for-profit agencies and factories throughout Erie and Chautauqua Counties.
The following programs are provided by Aspire of WNY:
