Helping Those with Disabilities Enter the Workforce.
For over 30 years, we have worked with individuals with various disabilities, both developmental or physical in nature, as they prepare to enter the workforce.
The process typically begins with a referral from the Missouri Division of Vocational Rehabilitation. You have a choice in your provider, and countless Missourians have looked to us to support them in not only their search, but in maintaining meaningful employment.
A member of our team welcomes the opportunity to work with you as you navigate what is the best situation for you that will lead to a job and career that meets your needs.
While we have an extensive history of providing these services in southern Missouri and the St. Louis region, we are in the process of expanding into many areas of Missouri. Please contact us to see if we are able to assist you in your employment search.
