“People with mental health conditions deserve just as much support and compassion as people with physical health conditions.” – Unknown
As a 245D licensed mental health clinic, Access Minnesota LLC is able to meet the needs of individuals who prefer to receive care and support in the comforts of their own home or community, rather than in an institutional setting.
- Supported Employment Services
At Access Minnesota LLC, we offer Supported Employment Services with the purpose to integrate individuals into their respective communities. We encourage them to find gainful means of earning a living so they can support their daily needs.
With our help, they are able to find competitive employment despite their disabilities. We believe that supportive encouragement makes a lot of difference as they transition into a lifestyle where they maintain a career that enables them to contribute to society.
Supportive Employment can be facilitated depending on the client’s district and placements will either be individual or by group. There will be a job coach who oversees the individuals as they learn the skills that will make them qualified for employment. Over time, as the individuals become more adjusted to their respective jobs, the support services from the job coach are diminished – this is one way to help the individual develop a sense of independence and responsibility.
What does Supportive Employment include?
- Setting career goals
- Assistance with job applications, getting interview appointments
- Ensuring that the individual is provided with a benefit package on top of basic pay
- Assistance in making the individual’s resume
- Training with how to commute to their workplace
- Training with specific work tasks
- Communication skills training
- Office decorum and behavioral training
- Acting as liaison for the individual in initial interaction with supervisors and co-workers
- Support services inside and outside of the workplace
We assist people with disabilities to find and maintain gainful employment. We can help you compose resumes, fill out job applications, practice your interview skills, match your interests and skills to available jobs in the industry, and more. We firmly believe that your disability shouldn’t hinder your ability to land a job and we are dedicated to helping you.
- Semi-Independent Living Services
Semi-Independent Living Services at Access Minnesota LLC includes training and assistance in independent living skills. This specifically targets for adults with developmental disabilities and other related conditions.
We provide these services to help such individuals continue to live in their homes, in their apartments or in other living environments of their preference. We encourage these individuals to help themselves while preserving their family values, respecting other community members, and being aware of cultural differences in their workplace.
We want to support people so they can achieve their goals and live their lives in the community with as much autonomy as possible to make decisions and care for themselves responsibly.
