Workforce Development

Employment & training services for adults with disabilities

One of the most important components of independent living is gainful employment. People with disabilities want to work, and studies show that they are often more reliable and efficient than their fellow employees without disabilities. Yet, 65% of people with disabilities remain unemployed.

The Easterseals Workforce Development Program in Silverdale sees a decent job for a person with a disability as the cornerstone of self reliance and independence.  We give support to people with disabilities, such as job coaching and transportation, so that their skills, not their disabilities, are the emphasis of their employability. We work with employers and employees to transcend workplace barriers and give people with disabilities the tools to maintain employment and advance their careers.
