Incompass and his job coach have helped Matt in his day program achieve his goal of working with computers. Thank you for his many awards and newsletter stories and his letter from Pres. Obama. Thank you, everyone, for being there for my son. I am so proud of him – he has a bright future ahead of him.
Frequently Asked Questions
My son already has a job. Can he keep that job after he comes to Incompass?
Yes. We want to support folks wherever they are. We’ll go over this and other details with you in our intake process discussion.
What supports does Incompass Employment Services offer?
We work with job seekers and help them develop their career plan. Then comes vocational training, mock interviews, resume writing and helping them build the skills they need to reach their career goals. We also work closely with employers to ensure they make reasonable accommodations and provide supports, natural or otherwise, for their employees’ success.
What kind of vocational training do you do?
We use the I Can Work! curriculum for vocational training. The I Can Work! program is a five-module course designed to integrate communication skills with hands-on pre vocational training in the areas of job readiness, clerical, retail, food service, and the grocery industry.
What is a career plan?

Individuals at Incompass discover what’s possible and become ready for the jobs that interest and suit them, which, in turn, boosts their empowerment, self-satisfaction, confidence, and independence. Vocational training and continuous on-the-job supports ensure your loved one’s sustained confidence, success, and satisfaction.
