Each participant receiving services has an individual plan to measure progress and development leading toward attaining the skills necessary to move to community employment.

     

    GROUP SUPPORTED EMPLOYMENT

    This transitional community-based training program provides support for individuals with disabilities (more than three, but less than eight) that perform contracted work under the supervision of a skills trainer. This program is for individuals who have mastered the skills necessary to “graduate” from the Noble Hunt work environment and transition to a more structured community work environment. Noble Hunt provides Group Supported Employment training in food service and winery fulfillment services.

    The Noble Hunt provides services on a referral basis working with the following County and State agencies:
