Focus Areas

Employment/Beneficiary Projects Initiative

Employment

Data demonstrates Trust beneficiaries are underrepresented in integrated employment settings with competitive wages. With this emphasis on beneficiary employment The Trust's intent is to ensure beneficiaries have the opportunity for:

  • integrated employment
  • competitive wages
  • meaningful activities and engagement
  • higher education
  • asset building
  • benefits analysis
  • training and awareness
  • support services

Peer Support

Involving beneficiaries in defining and mapping out their recovery is a well-known treatment tactic and may help prevent the need for more intensive traditional service. Although many beneficiaries and their family members share an interest in developing services, not all have the expertise or training to organize, implement and sustain the programs they envision.  The Beneficiary Projects Initiative supports and helps fund grassroots, beneficiary-driven, peer-to-peer programs and small, one-time projects that improve the lives of Trust beneficiaries.
