Supported Employment Program
Northwest Center has a team of job coaches who support individuals in their community jobs. Our coaches are trained to work with individuals of all abilities. A person may require occasional, intermittent support, or may need assistance throughout their shift – we tailor the support to meet each person’s needs. Our job is to help each individual we serve be successful in theirs. We offer services in King County and Spokane County in Washington State.
Participants must be connected with the key funding agencies listed below.
- Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS), Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA)
- Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS), Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR)
- Students need to apply for benefits through the Social Security Administration (SSA)

Innovative Employment Services for People with Disabilities
We place people in jobs that match their skills, and then provide them with the appropriate level of support at each step along their career path. We know that employing people with disabilities is good for business. Studies show that inclusion benefits the entire workplace with better morale, efficiency, and consumer reviews.
