Individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities can absolutely enjoy the rewards of being a contributing member in society and have the satisfaction and pride that comes with having a job or volunteering. With assistance from Toward Maximum Independence (TMI) Job Coaches and through our Integrated Work, Supported Employment, Tailored Day and Evolution to Independence (Deaf and Hard of Hearing) services, our employment programs work with individuals to secure and maintain gainful employment in the community, if desired, and also work in collaboration with local businesses to develop volunteer opportunities for our clients.
Our Employment Solutions (ES) partners include several notable companies including Smart & Final, Ross, Barnes & Noble, Amazon and many other outstanding companies.
Although paid work is the desired outcome for our clients, many are working as volunteers at a wide variety of nonprofit organizations throughout San Diego, Riverside and Imperial Counties.
TMI further assists local school districts to secure jobs for students in their last year of public education to help promote and ensure a smooth transition from school to adult life where jobs are the first order of business.
