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.

Connecting businesses with qualified, job-ready candidates.

ADEC takes pride in providing choice and possibility to the clients we serve. But, we also want to provide choice and possibility to businesses, employers, and community partners through our community employment services program.

Through the years, we have helped employers in Elkhart and St. Joseph counties fill open positions with pre-screened, qualified, and job ready candidates. Community employment partners with employers and businesses across a spectrum of industries including but not limited to: environmental, food service, healthcare, hospitality, human services, manufacturing, non-profit, office/clerical, production, and retail.

Employing individuals who have disabilities diversifies your workforce, offers professional and personal development for current employees, and contributes to the overall well-being of your community and increases social awareness.

“Working with the ADEC employment program has been a very positive experience not only for our ADEC employees, but for Poly Electronics as a whole. To be a very small part of such a big mission in making a difference in people’s lives has been a great blessing for all of us at Poly Electronics.”
