The program is being expanded to allow for paid work experience during assessment and exploration. This experience can help to identify additional skill sets, support needs, and work preferences as well as to develop successful work habits. Additionally, Morgan Support Services Vocational Staff are ready to assist folks in exploring microenterprise and self-employment opportunities.
Supported employment services are funded through the NC Medicaid Innovations Waiver. Days and hours of service will vary based on service details.
