The unemployment rate among adults with disabilities is nearly 12 times the national average. Two out of three people with disabilities want to work, but have not been able to secure jobs because of accessibility and attitudinal barriers. Easter Seals TriState's workforce development services provide an individualized approach to assisting persons with disabilities and other needs to make informed choices and attain their employment aspirations. Our approach includes an array of services and supports that ultimately lead to employment. This approach is designed to identify goals, objectives, and planning needs, and providing the supports a person needs to achieve and maintain employment.
Easter Seals can help you determine what might work for you in reaching your employment goals.
As a long-term provider of Workforce Development services, annually Easter Seals assists nearly 15,000 people with disabilities and disadvantages to overcome barriers to employment. At the same time, Easter Seals continues to be a pioneer in the field by developing innovative ways to help individuals achieve greater economic self-sufficiency and be more active in their communities through participation in social enterprise (businesses operated by Easter Seals TriState).
Through Easter Seals TriState's vocational assessment and youth transition services, individuals receive guidance regarding employment options in developing their employment goals and objectives. Services range from a general assessment of skills and abilities, to job tryouts and summer employment for youth.
Our goal is to promote veterans' successes by helping them attain their personal and family goals while becoming full participants within their own communities.
