Supported Employment

"Helping Make Goals a Reality"

As part of our effort to help people become better integrated with their community, we encourage our individuals to seek local job opportunities. If you have any interest to help provide a work experience for an individual in your business, please contact info@newlifetn.com.

Supported Employment is designed to assist people with developmental disabilities in finding employment. We are seeking support from the Franklin County community so we can make this goal a reality for many of the men and women served by New Life.

To ensure the success of this unique program for the employer and the newly hired employee, a New Life Job Coach will accompany the new hire as he/she begins the initial employment phase to reinforce on-site job training. The job coaching can be ongoing for as long as necessary.

The New Job job coach has been trained to provide assistance necessary in a working environment. He/she facilitates transportation needs and helps to strength communication between the employer and the new hire.
