A paying job is an enormous source of pride and personal independence. Our Employment Gateway Program is part of a nationwide vocational rehabilitation network of services that helps adults with disabilities find full- or part-time work. An employment specialist helps pair the individual to a job that matches his or her skills and interests, then provides on-the-job training and support until the individual can perform the job independently.
And, in an effort to better prepare young adults with disabilities for employment, we have partnered with the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools to offer a specialized class -- Transition to Adult Life in the Community. Learn more here.
Employers Benefit, Too
Meeting the needs of our Employment Partners is a top priority. Employers benefit by gaining dependable, hard-working, diverse employees who are trained with the assistance of an Employment Specialist – all at no cost to the Employer. The Employment Specialist works with the Employer to ensure the job is performed successfully from the beginning.
