Prevocational Supported Employment/Employment Support Services

Prevocational Supported Employment (PVSE), is our fastest growing program which is currently serving over 23 individuals. This program is for our participants with a desire to work and remain as independent as possible. We teach basic job skills and provide meaningful services in our community. They work on chore crews (lawn mowing, snow shoveling, raking, processing recycling, etc.), assist with the day-to-day operations of our facility (laundry, dishes, janitorial, etc.), and complete smaller jobs for outside agencies (shredding, packaging, etc.). There are a variety of work projects to fit each individual skill set and interests.  Employment Support Services (ESS) are also offered which are designed to help participants maintain community employment.

Those who are on the CADI or TBI waiver are eligible to enroll in the program. Others may also qualify, please contact FST for more information.

Our DSS program is licensed for up to 40 individuals with developmental disabilities. The focus of this day program caries for each participant. We develop a care plan that works to support the desired outcome for each individual. Our intent is to provide the best care possible through kind and compassionate care according to their specific needs. We provide supported employment, assistance with personal cares, and stimulating interaction with staff members and peers.

Those that qualify for the MMRC waiver are eligible for our services. Please contact one of the Program Directors for more information on the enrollment requirements.
