Supported Employment Services


CICIL's Employment Program offers assistance and support to help individuals receive training, obtain a job and be a successful employee. We work closely with those involved in the program to develop a plan that meets the individual’s goals and needs. CICIL’s Supported Employment Program is a job placement program designed to meet the employment needs of individuals with developmental or intellectual disabilities. The four components involved are individualized career discovery and exploration, job development and placement, job coaching and job retention.

Each participant is supported by a job coach and mentor who helps the participant learn new job skills and maintain employment. This program is open to residents of the Greater Des Moines area who are at least 18 years old.

 

Those involved in this program have access to CICIL's network of employers who are actively seeking to hire people with disabilities. We have assisted people in securing employment at the entry level as well as professional positions in fields such as customer service, retail, janitorial, management, medical, call centers and many others.

 

CICIL also works with individuals who will be transitioning from high school, from incarceration, etc. to find employment.

 

CICIL will continue to work on creating services for the transition from institutional settings to community living. Once we do create and effectively manage that service we will update you.
