PHP Day Programs
Everyone wants to work at a job and earn a fair wage—and we agree. Employment helps build self-esteem and independence.
We are continually advocating in our communities to partner with employers in hiring individuals being served. We engage with our community partners to match their job needs with individuals who would like to work. Individuals earn at or above minimum wage.
If an individual cannot work in the community independently, we offer Supported Employment Services and Job Coaches. These supports are for individuals for whom competitive employment at or above the minimum wage is unlikely absent the provision of the support of a Job Coach. Supported Employment Services are designed to help individuals find full-time or part-time work in the community and maintain their employment at or above minimum wage. It is the goal of these services to, if possible, train the individual to become independent in the competitive workforce.
For those not quite ready for competitive employment, but have the desire to learn employment skills, we offer in-house training to acquire skills and behaviors that increase competence and self-esteem that could eventually lead to some form of employment. We also offer facility-based work opportunities.
