Transforming Lives Through Work

Did you know? 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.

At Easterseals Colorado, we believe all people should be 100 percent included and 100 percent empowered in the workforce. We focus on defining and finding the right job, regardless of age or ability. Working with Employment Services, you'll be provided with the training and guidance you need to prepare for and enter the workforce so you can earn money to live and thrive.

Who do we serve?

Client Employment Services provided by Easterseals are designed for:

  • Persons with disabilities whose functional limitations present substantial barriers to employment
  • Persons experiencing barriers to employment that need to find stable employment
  • Persons that need supportive work places that can allow them to grow into their full potential
  • Employers who would like to increase and diversify their pool of eligible workers

What do we do?

Employment Services creates and prepares work settings that promote the most independent work for each specific client. Working collaboratively with other agencies we create job opportunities that are individualized and designed to match the skills and strengths of the client with the needs of the employer.

Employment Services creates individualized plans to guide clients to their fullest potential. These plans help our clients understand and strive for their best in a setting that allows them to make measurable progress and reach identified goals. Reaching these goals continually develops each client's job skills allowing them to maintain employment in a supported setting or work completely independently.
