We vision the guarantee that our communities’ citizens with disabilities have the same opportunities to participate in American life; to enjoy employment opportunities, have the opportunity to purchase goods and services and to participate in local and state programs and services.
Without this guarantee, citizens with disabilities are unable to participate and non-participation will not strengthen, but undermine our ability as a nation to prosper.
Employment is a challenge for people with disabilities in the U.S. From employers to employees, from instructors and rehabilitators to students, and from agencies to those grasping for an opportunity for employment; however, there are changes on the horizon.
We believe that fulfillment can be achieved in many different ways and at every stage of life. It is our mission to offer individuals the path toward a fulfilling life and gain a greater control of their future.
We recognize that employment may not be possible for everyone, but we also believe that fulfillment can be achieved in many different ways and at every stage of life. It is our mission to offer individuals the path toward a fulfilling life and gain a greater control of their future.
There are many things we could be doing, NOW, to ensure a bright future!
Employers are looking for people with experience, however, often people cannot gain that experience without an employer taking a chance on them. Through the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, candidates are working toward identifying those skills for which they excel and those for which they need additional education or training.
New Horizons Un-Limited provides Employment Training and Work Experience. Temporary workers come to us through the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation and through our program we train and evaluate their skills in the work environment to see those for which they need additional education or training.
Let us introduce two individuals with whom we worked this past year. Both had graduated from high school, but needed an opportunity to show an aptitude for computer or information technology to pursue their career dreams. Both Chris and Mikal proved to be hard working, well organized, and creative problem solvers. Upon completion of their Employment Training and Work Experience with us, we were able to recommend both of them capable in refurbishing computers, to be very productive employees, and ready for continuing education or employment.
We recently learned that Mikal has accepted employment in cell phone repair and Chris is finishing post-secondary education and will be ready to pursue employment this fall. Congratulations to both as they continue their career paths!
