The EmployAbility program focuses on increasing prevocational skills, in order to prepare individuals for community-based employment. EmployAbility focuses in the areas of transportation and safety, professional dress, professional expectations, emergency procedures and job task completion. The program also supports the development of social skills and teamwork. Easter Seals Iowa partners with Des Moines area community businesses to put these skills into action. EmployAbility clients work in business settings, completing a variety of job tasks. By volunteering their time, EmployAbility clients strengthen prevocational skills, and community businesses benefit from their efforts.
EmployAbility serves adults who have been diagnosed with a developmental and/or intellectual disability in Polk and surrounding counties.
Funding Accepted: Amerigroup, UnitedHealthcare, Fee for Service/HIPP Medicaid Waiver and Private Pay
