Services for People with Disabilities

The Workforce Assistance Center provides education, training, work based learning, and employment opportunities for persons with disabilities who are unemployed, underemployed, and/or receiving Social Security disability benefits. We are an approved Employment Network (EN) provider and administer Social Security Administration’s Ticket to Work program. Ticket to Work helps persons with disabilities that are receiving SSI or SSDI return to work. Our EN has certified Community Partner Work Incentive Counselors who ensure that beneficiaries understand the impact of earnings on disability benefits.

The Workforce Assistance Center also provides support and education to businesses on the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), job accommodations, and the value of hiring and retaining skilled persons with disabilities.
