The Supported Employment Collaborative (SEC) is a collaboration of non-profit agencies whose intention is to narrow the employment gap for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) by working with businesses to decrease the number of unemployed individuals in the City and County of Denver.

For Colorado businesses the SEC project is focused on building Colorado’s workforce and ensuring that businesses, especially, throughout the Denver metropolitan area, have increased access to a skilled and qualified workforce.  Given the scarcity and prohibitive cost of skilled labor today, for businesses, the SEC can be your FREE source to solve talent acquisition needs.

For individuals with IDD, THAT RESIDE IN THE CITY AND COUNTY of DENVER, the SEC project, at no cost to you, assists you in navigating the enrollment process with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, if appropriate, provides customized assessment, pre-vocational training, individualized person-centered job placement and on-the-job support.  Let the SEC be your source for finding and maintaining meaningful successful employment at or above minimum wage.
