How We Work

Upon receiving a referral for services, Quest, carefully matches you with an Employment Specialist best fit to address your specific employment needs to ensure you receive the highest quality assistance to achieve employment.

Our Process

Quest utilizes a “boots on the ground” approach to job development by building relationships with employers and accessing positions not typically listed on standard job boards. For individuals who require a greater level of support, we offer Supported Employment Services by utilizing a high fidelity model of Individual Placement and Person- Centered Support.

Our Approach

Our Employment Specialists use evidence-based practices and time-tested methodologies to deliver quality employment, disability, and transition services to meet the needs of our customers. If you or your referring agency have any questions regarding which service will best help you achieve your goals, please schedule a consultation.
