Become a SCSEP Host Agency for Workers 55 and Up

Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP)
SCSEP is a federally funded program that helps job seekers 55 and Up get back to work. Our participants are varied backgrounds and have one thing in common: they want to get back to work and are ready to support your organization.

As a provider for the U.S. Department of Labor’s Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP), we place qualified workers in subsidized positions at non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations and government agencies.

Host Agency Responsibilities

We match the skills, experience, and needs of participants with your staffing needs and your mission. The employer is required to help the participant learn new skills that can be used when the participant transitions out of the program into an unsubsidized position.

Host Agency Benefits:

  • Agency receives ongoing case management support
  • NO COST to Host Agency
  • ABLE administers payroll for participants
  • SCSEP participants live within your community

Participant Support and Training

SCSEP participants will be paid for training in their community for up to 20 hours a week, get help searching for a job, and gain new skills and work experience that can lead to unsubsidized employment.

Advantages to Employers

  • Part-time staff member for up to 20 hours per week at no cost to you
  • Address staffing needs at no cost to you
  • Payroll is managed by Operation ABLE
  • You get to evaluate a trained and experienced candidate for future job openings first hand


Any 501(c)(3) or Government Agency Can Qualify as a Host Agency
