Community Employment

Since 1950, LOGAN has been dedicated to providing resources for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including employment assistance.

Today, we work hand-in-hand with state agencies to prepare job seekers with the skills they need to obtain and keep an employment position within our community.

Specifically, we:

  • Assess job readiness
  • Provide interview coaching and resume assistance
  • Help with transportation during the interview process
  • Coordinate job placement
  • Provide on-the-job support
  • Offer job development specialists who help individuals obtain and keep a job.
  • Provide a job coach who works with the specialists to prepare the employee

To qualify for Community Employment through LOGAN, adults over 18 must be referred through Indiana Vocational Rehabilitative Services (VRS). Individuals can be self-referred, or the referral can be made by family members or a support team member by calling, writing or visiting any Vocational Rehabilitation Office.

When an individual is determined eligible for services, a VRS counselor will provide you direct contact information to LOGAN Community Employment.
