Employment Opportunities

We are always happy to connect individuals to job opportunities. We work both locally with our employers and with nationwide movements to help job seekers find the employment that matches their strengths.

Tools to help you find employment

Employment First is a national movement to assist job seekers with developmental disabilities (DD) to work in competitive, integrated employment. In March 2012, Governor John Kasich signed an Executive Order making community employment a priority for people with developmental disabilities. Employers recognize that employees with DD are reliable and perform equal to or better than non-disabled employees. Visit Ohio Employment First to learn more.

Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) is the State of Ohio agency that partners with Ohioans with disabilities to achieve quality employment and independence, and makes determinations on Social Security disability. To learn more, visit Opportunities for Ohioan with Disabilities website.
