Our Employment Services Program

Employment Services at Impact assists participants in utilizing their existing skills and experience to find meaningful employment that places them on the path towards their career goals.

The program uses the Individual Placement & Support (IPS) model, an evidence-based model of supported employment developed at Dartmouth College. IPS is specifically designed to integrate employment into mental health treatment. Impact helps provide employment services in partnership with a variety of community mental health centers, social service agencies, and Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) throughout the Chicago area.
