We believe individuals with disabilities deserve the opportunity to find dignity and meaning in work while making productive contributions to the community and contribute to the well being of our society as tax-paying citizens.
At ADEC, we strive to be the benchmark in providing quality employment opportunities for individuals experiencing life with a disability, having successfully placed more than 200 adults with a disability at businesses in Elkhart and St. Joseph counties over the past five years.
To do this, our Community Employment division works with both employers and job seekers to ensure the goals and interests of each party are factored into our job placement recommendations. Job seekers are assigned their very own Employment Consultant who walks alongside them throughout the entire job search process (and even well after job placement in some cases), helping the individual become qualified for meaningful employment opportunities in his or her community.
HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED
Volunteer – Through our volunteer program, you can help administer mock interviews or even lead a job readiness class.
Become a partnering employer – Having businesses in the community partner as advocates of persons with disabilities is essential to our success. If you are a business owner and would like to be considered as an employment option for individuals with disabilites, please get in contact with us.
