Finding sustainable employment is a challenge for much of the population, but some face particularly profound barriers. People experiencing chronic un- or underemployment may lack the up-to-date skills, references, or connections to get them into a career. Others may have a blemish on their record hindering their job search. Still others may have difficulty getting their foot in the door because of childcare needs or transportation gaps.
In addition, 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.
Easterseals understands that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to matching people with a career. We provide an individualized approach to every person we work with. We help them 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 to provide the supports a person needs to achieve and maintain employment.
