About

 Welcome to Job Placement with Supported Employment for TANF recipients. Trading Places Foundation wants to continue to assist in helping Georgia lead the nation in their work participation rate of helping individuals, transition from TANF to self-sufficiency. We are a company with experienced staff with an outstanding record of providing life skills training, job placement, job readiness training, and case management services to TANF consumers.

 

What is supported employment? Traditionally supportive employment facilitates competitive work in integrated work settings for individuals with the most severe disabilities who need ongoing support services in order to perform their job.  Recent studies indicate the provision of on-going support services for people with severe disabilities significantly increases their rates for employment retention.

 

The experienced staff of Trading Places Foundation endeavors to take that approach with the TANF population. The benefit of supported employment for TANF customers is to provide ongoing support that may be needed to assure success for job retention.
