For individuals with disabilities, an employment opportunity means more than just a paycheck. A job provides individuals with an opportunity to be a part of society and potentially gives that person self-confidence which they may have lacked.

Unity Employment Services (UES) provides a number of services with various funding sources, so there is no cost to the individual or to the employer. UES serves a diverse population of adults with disabilities, including but not limited to behavioral, developmental, physical, etc.

UES takes a person-centered approach to help identify each individual’s strengths, interests, objectives and needs. These services include:
Developing a vocational plan for successful employment
Assisting in the development of a resume, cover letter, and references
Matching each individual’s abilities to a specific job related to their goals
Assist in making an e-mail account suitable for job development activities
Help with on-line applications/assessments
Providing interview preparation and accompanying individual to interview
Securing state and federal financial incentives for employers
Encouraging working relationships between the individual and the employer/co-workers
Being a liaison between the individual and employer if needed
Problem-solving and assisting individual to overcome employment barriers
