Our Supported Employment Department, Employment Solutions represents job seekers with vastly varied skills, abilities, and interests to bring to the workplace. We work with motivated, reliable job seekers who also happen to experience a developmental disability. At Employment Solutions, we act as a liaison between our community businesses and skilled job seekers. We match businesses’ unmet needs to a job seeker with those skills to offer. We are available as supplemental trainers for the new employee and business’ long term success.
Our Family Support Department provides supports to the families of children who experience cerebral palsy and related disabilities. We offer support groups, outings, conferences, advocacy, information and referral, and some respite care. Most importantly, we offer hope and through the gatherings we host, families get to meet others who understand and are living the same life.
