What can YOU do?

Work is fundamental to our lives. It means so much more than a paycheck — it offers purpose and the opportunity to lead an independent, self-directed life for all people, including people with disabilities.

People with disabilities have the skills to pursue meaningful careers and play an important role in America’s educational and economic success. In fact, experience with disability can offer a competitive edge when it comes to work. If you are a person with a disability, only you can define your own limitations. High expectations are essential to success. Organizations exist that can help you seek employment, identify the tools you need to be productive on the job, and understand your right to be evaluated on your ability, not disability. Because after all, at work it’s what people can do that matters.

Tell us what YOU can do!
If you are a person with a disability, we’d like to hear from you.

Please take a moment to share information about your job skills and talents. Your story will increase employers’ awareness of the talents and skills that people with disabilities contribute to the workplace and help challenge misconceptions about disability and employment.

Office work is what I have done for years, I am only limited by my balance and coordination. I have worked in various fields, recently I have been working more in line with the criminal system.

Supervise staff employees. Ensure daily departmental operations run smoothly. Schedule and manage departmental coverage to ensure proper staff support is provided. Approve leave request submissions, compose and administer annual performance evaluations; compile monthly statistical reports for review, and process weekly time sheets. I have my Associates Degree in Criminal Justice.
