Employment First Town Hall

A- A+
2-27-2019

WE NEED YOU!  People with disabilities, their families, and community members are invited to come and share your ideas for how to improve employment for people with disabilities.
 
What is Employment First? Employment First means competitive employment, fair wages, and career advancement for people with disabilities. Many are not aware that a 2017 law was passed that says “community integrated employment must be the first and preferred outcome of services for people with disabilities. “
 
Through a community conversation participants will discuss how Indiana and Fort Wayne can increase employment and change systems.  The goals are to:
  • Develop a group of people in the Fort Wayne area supporting Employment First;
  • Identify barriers to getting jobs and design a system that works for people;
  • Develop local initiatives to educate and dispel myths about community employment; and
  • Document success stories of people with disabilities working in the Fort Wayne community.
