Supported Employment Program

Supported Employment Program (Life Skills Development Level 2)

Employment assistance is offered for those who are seeking community-based employment. A supported employment coach assists the individuals in the program to obtain identification cards, arrange transportation, apply for jobs and learn specific skills for the job. Individuals who remain in the workforce can request long-term supports for as long as they need. The Arc Tampa Bay accepts referrals through the following agencies and programs:
