IT’S DISABILITY EMPLOYMENT AWARENESS MONTH
Monday, October 25, 2021
October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month, celebrated each year to commemorate the many contributions of people with disabilities to the American workplace and economy.
What is Disability Employment?
Any individual with a disability who wishes to pursue employment in their community can get our assistance but must first receive authorization from the Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation office (VR). Once they are approved by VR, they will be given a choice of providers with whom they may work. Career Links provides these services in Kosciusko, Cass, Fulton and Marshall Counties of Indiana.
In Cardinal Services’ Career Links program, we take pride in working with individuals with disabilities and to help them find meaningful jobs in their communities. Once employed, we work with their employer to train each person and then follow them in their employment journey as they learn and grow, being onsite to observe and offer advice and re-training if needed. Our greatest success is when the worker no longer needs us!
In addition to these services, Career Links is serving eight area high schools by providing transition-based services to students with disabilities, and we are constantly developing more employment opportunities and accepting new referrals.
