John Camperlino, Supported Employment Director
Spoke with John Camperlino about their supported employment program and it really sounds wonderful. They take their time to look for just the right job that fits the person and then continues their support for a year! He said it works best if the client comes to them BEFORE they go to Voc. Rehab. They will work with the client to get an overview of the needs and skills and passions and will then go with the client to Voc. Rehab. to help them with the process. Then once they get approved, everything will already be in place for them to immediately move forward. If someone is already in Voc. Rehab., they can request them as a "vendor" so they can become a client. Sometimes that may work or not, depending on your caseworker at Voc. Rehab.
