Hope for Disabilities

Fulfilling unmet needs in the disability community

Post Graduation/Summer Employment Opportunities

Posted by Emily Jensen on June 5, 2014 at 7:25 PM

June is the time for school to be letting out, people to be going on vacation, getting ready for college, or maybe even a job of some sort.  Depending on a person's diagnosis and potential employers lack of knowledge about the dignosis and disability rights and laws, this can be a physically exhausting, and emotionally draining experience.  Depending on a person's background and training, and the lack of jobs available due to the struggling economy along with other contributing factors, finding a job that suits the persons abilities may be easier said than done.  There are a few non profit organizations today that help people with, "disabilities", try to find employment where they will be successful, and hopefully not be discriminated against.  This list that we will be sharing might change from time to time as we learn of more opportunities that are available, and we hope that if those of you reading this blog know of an opportunity, you will share it with us, so that we can keep our list current and up to date.
