Supported Employment Services assist people with developmental disabilities to become successfully employed in businesses in the community.

EBI helps people identify the type of employment they desire and then networks with local employers to develop a match. Once hired, EBI provides one on one on-the-job training and support to assist the person to be successful in their work.

EBI provides an array of services to help the person served to successfully learn and maintain their job. These services include:

  • Assistance in learning public transportation
  • Resume writing
  • Interview preparation
  • Assistance in understanding Social Security work incentives


Even after the individual is working independently, EBI continues to follow-up with the employee and employer to ensure continued success.
