Employment First

A belief that 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.

For many people that receive state funded services, the idea of employment has almost been an afterthought, especially for people with significant disabilities. Other options that have had a higher priority include Day Support, Pre-Vocational training or Sheltered Work in a facility that may have paid wages less than the Federal minimum wage.
