Reciprocal Supported Employment Program

TRC believes employment and purpose crucial to feel included in the community. TRC’s pilot program, Supported Employment, targets unemployed, disenfranchised individuals who demonstrate the desire to obtain stable employment. We intentionally recruit participants who have experienced homelessness and/or who must overcome often-connected employment barriers, such as domestic violence, a criminal record, or mental health/substance abuse issues. Nearly all TRC Participants have experienced trauma as the result of their life circumstances. TRC targets the Hospitality, Retail and Manufacturing sectors to develop Employer Partnerships. Our Supported Employment Program: 1) helps participants quickly secure competitive employment; 2) provides long-term support to help participants remain employed and 3) provides ongoing 1:1 coaching and development of life skills. The Supported Employment Program also provides Employer-Partners with the training/support needed to incorporate the principals of trauma-informed care and safe structured supervision throughout their workplace to help facilitate a shift in the culture of workplaces towards empathy, diversity, and inclusiveness for sustained ability to successfully to employ and connect with disenfranchised individuals.

In 2018, TRC saw the need for strongly develop community connections beyond employers/partners to best support our participants, developing The Reciprocal Community Resource Project. Many of the individuals we encountered in the community thrived with the support we offered through their employment, but still faced significant challenges in their lives outside of work that could easily destabilize them. Utilizing existing resources, we connect our participants to the medical and mental health community, food and nutrition education, family wellness, spiritual camaraderie, avenues for creative expression, healthy animal interaction and more. TRC has found that these connections have decreased the isolation of our participants and allowed them to gradually find their way back to health and stability with disenfranchised individuals.
