There is no cost for our services. It only takes a willingness to make a difference. We partner with state, local, non-profit and private groups for resources. Studies found that for every dollar used to fund supported employment, taxpayers receive one and one-half times back in the form of taxes paid. In these respects, supported employment is the best investment for taxpayers.
