Editor's note: The lives of
thousands of Jews here and
overseas are touched by the
agencies of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Metropolitan Detroit.
This is one of a series that il-
lustrates how Federation agen-
cies, supported by the Allied
Jewish Campaign, help
people.
Not too long ago, someone
like Dave would have spent
his days in an institution for
people with mental illness or
he would have been left on
the streets to fend for himself.
Today, Dave, who has a
history of chronic mental ill-
ness, can thank Jewish Voca-
tional Service and Kadima for
his full-time job.
Dave, 35, was diagnosed
with schizophrenia while in
his first year of college, and
hospitalized several times.
Because of his illness, he was
unable to finish college or
hold onto a job for more than
a few months.
"I didn't know what was go-
ing to happen to me;' he said.
A client of Kadima, a local
Jewish mental health agency
(independent of the Cam-
paign), Dave found a job with
the assistance of the
JVS/Kadima Supported Em-
ployment Program, which of-
fers vocational rehabilitation
assistance to people with
chronic mental illness.
"I like the work and the
people I work with;' said
Dave about his job.
In 1990, Dave moved from a
Kadima group home into an
apartment under agency
supervision, and was referred
to the Supported Employ-
ment Program (SEP), which
helps men and women with
mental illness to find
employment.
"We found that there was a
need for more intensive sup-
port services than had been
traditionally available, to
help participants choose, find
and keep jobs;' said Lydia
Gray, coordinator of the JVS
Vocational Rehabilitation
Service. "Part of being out in
the community is working.
Many people with mental ill-
ness would have a hard time
without support."
Through SEP, Dave was
able to explore his interests
and skills and learn how to
look, apply and interview for
a job. He chose to do clerical
or stock work.
After a few disappointing
interviews, Dave was hired as
a shipping clerk for a small
Southfield company.
The JVS staff provided
coaching services to help him

master the tasks and adjust
to the demands of his new
workplace.
Now, except for periodic
visits by his caseworker, Dave
works independently at a job
he likes. He is a regular
employee, earning com-
petitive wages and working
full time.
"I have a job, a home, and
I'm on my own;' said Dave. LI
