Support Employment Program

About Support Employment

The Eugenia Center’s Support
Employment Program assists
individuals in finding meaningful
employment in their local
communities.
Participants are integrated into
community employment settings
as part of the process of
discovering their gifts and
talents. Employment specialists
seek to match each client with
employment that best matches
their interests and abilities.

We strive to support full
participation in
community life for every
client we serve.
