Research has shown that many individuals with developmental disabilities lose their jobs due to lack of social skills rather than lack of job skills. Our long term support of both client and employer provides a bridge to help both parties over the rough times.

 

As a result of our long term support, many of our clients who otherwise would not have been able to maintain employment have experienced success.
