Employment Services

Easterseals UCP provides Employment Services for adults with disabilities, enabling individuals to earn wages and develop skills.  The programs are available to individuals with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities and individuals with Mental Health or Substance Use Challenges. 

Employment Services for individuals with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities
Employment Services enables people with disabilities to not only earn a sustainable wage but also give back to their communities.  We provide one-on-one assistance at a person's job site to help develop skills and build supportive relationships with co-workers and employers.  These services also help individuals with disabilities identify career interests and skills, and connect them with meaningful, competitive jobs with community employers.  This also can include community evaluations, job coaching, job training and ongoing support.
