Community Integrated Employment extends the natural supports concept by connecting developmentally disabled people with skills training and paid employment. Meaningful employment gives individuals a measure of financial independence and fosters their self-confidence and sense of belonging in the community. Work situations also provide opportunities for social interaction, enhanced communication skills, and help in developing natural support networks. 

In FY 2016:

  • 23 individuals were helped to get and keep jobs in local businesses
  • 65 extended family members received services to help them better understand how to address the emotional and developmental needs of their developmentally disabled family member(s).

  • The program staff worked with the following businesses: Mesa Library, Otowi Cafeteria at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, New Mexico Office Products, Angelina's Restaurant, Ruby K's Bagel, Cafe, Santa Clara Pueblo, the Rio Grande Sun Newspaper, the Episcopalian Church, and Jicarilla Grocery Store.
