Do you know what Pennsylvania’s Employment First Initiatives Means for You?

Reservation is required to get connection information. See below for information.

Pennsylvania believes it is time to raise the expectations of all our residents and wants individuals with disabilities working in integrated community-based employment.  All Pennsylvanians should have the ability to be hired and fired.  It is time we no longer settle for programs and services that do not encourage full participation in our community and join the ranks of other states that demonstrate people with disabilities can be successful in competitive employment.

Join us for a presentation on how state plans will accomplish this, what legislation has been proposed and how it might impact state plans and employment services.  Learn what programs and resources we have to accomplish this and how you can join the effort.  Don’t be left behind!

The webinar will be followed by a facilitated discussion.
