Individual Placement and Support (IPS) is an evidenced-based model of supported employment that helps all individuals interested in working to obtain jobs of their choosing. The program serves both adults and adolescents. IPS services can be accessed through our adult CalWorks program in the Antelope Valley and in our Penny Lane housing programs in the San Fernando Valley.
Employment services may include:
“My Employment Specialist helped me feel confident in being able to talk to employers and practice my interview skills.”
“Everyone on the IPS team gave me so much support and I was able to find a job I look forward to everyday.”
“After talking about my goals, my IPS team helped me enroll in a certificate program. I now have a career and not just a job.”
“I had some struggles at work when I first started my job. My Employment Specialist helped me speak with my supervisor, and the situation got better.”
“Penny Lane really listened to what we were looking for in a job applicant and found a candidate with those skills.”
“The employee we hired was motivated and reliable.”
“We called the Employment Specialist when we needed applicants. They brought in a great applicant right away, who we ended up hiring.”
“It has been beneficial working with the program as they prepare applicants for the job. They also help workers improve their job performance. “
