Why work?

Meaningful work has significant benefits for all working age adults, including people with disabilities.  People with disabilities have the right to make informed decisions about where they work, and to have opportunities to obtain community jobs that result in greater earnings, better benefits, improved health, and enhanced quality of life.

In addition, meaningful employment offers individuals with disabilities the opportunity to bolster self-esteem, expand their network of natural supports, make friends, and demonstrate their abilities in a public setting.  People with disabilities can contribute to the diversity of our workforce and enrichment of our community.
