Job Placement

Job Placement

Through job placement, direct employment, individual or group supported employment and facilitated employment, ServiceSource supports more than 2,300 people with disabilities in obtaining and maintaining jobs in community-based settings.

Delaware Job Placement Services

ServiceSource’s Employment and Rehabilitation Programs are designed to help people prepare for, locate and retain jobs either in the community or as part of ServiceSource’s affirmative employment operations. Through counseling, coaching, instruction and networking, ServiceSource staff members assist participants to conduct their job search as independently as possible and find stable, successful employment in their communities. Placement services are provided in New Castle, Kent and Sussex Counties and are funded primarily through the Delaware Division of Vocational Rehabilitation. For more information, please contact placementwilmington@servicesource.org or  placementdover@servicesource.org

Retention Support

We want to do more than help people find jobs — we want to help them launch careers. That’s why we provide ongoing retention support services to assist individuals to be successful in their jobs. The retention counselor stays in close contact with both the individual and their employer, helping him or her deal with new situations such as changes in work procedures and working through interpersonal issues with co-workers or supervisors. We will provide additional training when needed, and when appropriate, will help an employer identify reasonable accommodations. For more information, contact: retention@servicesource.org

Supported Employment

This program provides employment and job coaching for individuals who have cognitive disabilities that make it more difficult to transfer skills they have learned elsewhere to a new job. We find that people learn best at the job site where they will be employed, and we offer a host of supports to help make that transition successful, including:

  • Intensive job development
  • Transportation & mobility training
  • Job coaching
  • Employment advocacy
  • Follow-along services

Through a collaboration with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, ServiceSource has placed adults with disabilities in full and part-time jobs throughout North Carolina, enabling them to become independent and productive members of their communities.

Situational Assessments

Individuals are exposed to situational assessments to identify vocational interests, capabilities and challenges. The evaluation determines the individual’s level of vocational competence and the specific programming needs of the individual.

Work Adjustment Training

Support services for the individual’s family and consultation with the employer and other involved agencies may also be provided.

Adult Developmental and Vocational Program
