Employment in the general workforce is the first and preferred outcome in the provision of publicly funded services for all working age citizens with disabilities, regardless of level of disability. When people with disabilities have integrated jobs in local businesses at a competitive wage, everybody wins!
Stand Up, Inc. is a proud member of APSE, the Association of People Supporting EmploymentFirst. As such, we strongly support the Employment First initiative. The initiative supports placing individuals with disabilities in community competitive employment, making minimum wage or higher, in an integrated setting.
At Stand Up, we only pursue employment opportunities for our clients that will meet the goals of this initiative.
