Helping prepare individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities achieve their employment goals.
Horizon offers pre- and post- employment training and coaching to support people entering the job market. We believe that everyone has the ability to become successful working members in our communities and lead a fulfilling life for themselves.
How We Can Help
Horizon serves individuals in the State of Arizona by providing them with employment guidance, support, tools and resources. We work collaboratively and proactively with individuals in programs already established within our system of care, such as the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) and the Department of Economic Security (DES).
Through our Supported Employment Services, we work directly with individuals to further enhance their ability to prepare for, enter into or retain employment. Horizon is proud to help people achieve their employment goals and dreams while they move towards self-sufficiency. Our coaching and support provides the skills needed to achieve employment, independence and self-reliance.
