Supported Employment

NEMROC has been providing Supported Employment services for people with disabilities for over 20 years. The program is successful as the needs and skills of the participant are carefully matched to the job site. Long term assistance is provided so that everyone involved has a positive experience. Financial support is provided through a partnership with Northeast Michigan Community Mental Health. NEMROC has developed two different approaches for our Supportive Employment Program:

Providing Employment

NEMROC will provide a service either short term or long term and will act as the Employer of Record. The jobsite provider will be billed monthly for covered wages and payroll tax.

Playing Matchmaker

We work with the employer to match a need with an individual and the employer hires that worker.

NEMROC Litter/ Pollination Brigade

The Litter / Pollination Brigade is a project of NEMROC and the Supported Employment program. The primary goal of the project is to create meaningful and rewarding work for the people with developmental disabilities who have a strong desire to have a job. Another goal is to make a very significant and positive change in the environmental quality of the community. This is made possible through a grant from the Besser Foundation and through support from Northeast Michigan Community Mental Health.

AbilityOne enjoys a long history of supporting the federal government. In 1938, Congress created the Wagner-O’Day Act, which enabled nonprofits that served people who were blind to sell products to the Federal Government. The Act was amended in 1971 to include people with other significant disabilities. This expanded Javits-Wagner-O’Day (JWOD) Act serves as the basis for the Federal AbilityOne Program.

The AbilityOne Program is among the nation’s largest providers of jobs for people who are blind or have significant disabilities. The Program uses the purchasing power of the Federal Government to buy products and services from participating nonprofit agencies that train and employ workers with disabilities.
