How to Bridge The Gap Between Disability and Employment

Everyone benefits when all are included!

Many of us have experienced challenges obtaining employment. If you have a developmental or intellectual disability those challenges take on a whole new dimension. You have skills. You have abilities and interests. You want to “give back” to your community and be accepted for who you are.
But too often the world does not understand your value… or what you have to offer.
Today we speak with Dirk Bakhuysen with Beyond26 and Rev. Bill Gaventa who helped create Putting Faith to Work, the program Beyond26 uses to identify work opportunities and match individuals to jobs where they will feel valued as a team member.
I think you will find the Beyond26 approach to matching individuals with job opportunities exciting! When employers and job seekers put their faith to work, miracles often happen!
