We believe employment is a right, not a privilege. Employment plays a central role in life and helps form a person's sense of identity and self-worth. We have a fantastic workforce. Let’s put it to work for you.

The AIM Center’s Supported Employment Program believes in the right to work. Coupled with our meaningful, competitive employment, a member’s sense of identity and self-worth grows. Through partnering with local business owners, our Supported Employment Program helps meet employment needs, while giving members dignity and purpose. We seek, secure, and provide job opportunities, which allow members to transition back into the world of competitive employment at their own pace. Meaningful work, and the dignity that comes with it, is far more than a paycheck.

Eighty-two percent of people living with a Serious Mental Illness (SMI) are unemployed. Society can stigmatize those living with an SMI and make it difficult to find gainful employment. Support through our Employment Resource Center begins with career guidance, interview training, resume building, and coaching. Many of our members did not have the confidence to apply for a job until visiting our program. The AIM Center is here to help members who are able get on a path to meaningful employment from wherever their starting point may be. Additional resources include job search, employment workshops, lifetime job retention and upgrading services, and follow up for both the employer and member.

Our Clubhouse is one of over 350 accredited clubhouses worldwide. Such programs are designed to remove obstacles and provide individualized supports to ensure success on-the-job. Accredited Clubhouses like the AIM Center achieve a 42% employment rate each year, versus an average employment rate of 20% for people in the public mental health system.

At the AIM Center, 43% of members who expressed interest in finding employment were employed within six months or fewer.

When you partner with the AIM Center, you are not only choosing to hire hard-working individuals but supporting people living with SMI to achieve their employment goals and find greater economic independence. If you are interested in participating in the AIM Center’s Supported Employment program as an employer, call us, and allow this proven model to do the work for you!
