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.
Successful employment can mean greater independence and bring pride in all that is accomplished.
Gaining employable skills through volunteer work and learning about community resources.
Individuals with disabilities over 62 years of age may be retired but still need that one-to-one support to access their community for everyday activities.
