Why Hire a Person With a Disability

posted by Nicole Rand on Friday, January 8, 2016

Over 65% of people with a disability are unemployed which is over 40% more than those unemployed without a disability. 

Offering equal employment opportunities means so much more than raising statistics, it provides a sense of belonging, self-worth, and purpose to someone who is ready, willing, and fully able to work.

“It’s good to give a chance and an opportunity to someone that needs a job and is capable of doing the job but just doesn’t typically get the opportunity.” - Steve Plummer, General Manager of Pepper’s Grill & Sports Pub

After receiving training from our employment services, persons served will have gained all necessary work-related skills to be ready to work.

“This is a win – win – win situation. You win as an organization, we win as an organization, and our residents win from the interaction of a caring, service attitude that our employees, your clients create which is what community is about.” – Kris Hansen, Western Home Communities CEO
