Brockton Area Mulit Services (BAMSI)
Brockton Employment Services assists individuals with developmental disabilities to secure community-based employment which meets their interests, skills, and abilities. Each person is entitled to fair, competitive wages and access to employer-sponsored benefits. BAMSI believes that all persons should have opportunities to perform work that is valued and improves the quality of their lives. Training and support is especially important for those individuals who are motivated to work, but whose work history indicates an inability to secure and maintain work over time.
BAMSI employment specialists work with local employers to make appropriate matches between individuals seeking employment and employers, based on individual interests and needs. Once a job is secured, the individual then receives on-the-job training to ensure successful, long-term employment. The employment specialist provides ongoing support through job site visits, phone calls and meetings with the individual outside of the work setting, and phone calls to the employer, as well as communication with family and/or residential staff to identify and address any problems. The employment specialist and the individual continue to meet one-on-one to address work-related issues and concerns, such as work ethics, transportation, and the impact of wage earnings on disability benefits.
