SourceAmerica Gives Opportunity To Disabled Community
July 25, 2017
SourceAmerica is dedicated to improving the availability of job opportunities for people who have disabilities. One way that they have been able to do this is through their Ideas to Work Fund. This program has led to a significant increase in job openings and it is changing the lives of people who are disabled. SourceAmerica’s accomplishments include:
Helped find hundreds of jobs
Funded 30 non-profit disability organizations
Opportunities in franchise
SourceAmerica has been able to help so many companies create openings so that they can hire people with disabilities. AccessAbility Inc. is one of the ways that SourceAmerica has been able to increase their outreach and help so many people. This group helps the disabled community not only find jobs, but they provide support and help along the way. This includes training and advice for applications. Ability is one of the main ways that SourceAmerica was able to expand their network throughout the business industry.
AHRC NYC helps Autistic people develop the skills and knowledge they need in order to get a job. They help them to get technology related jobs by providing them with in depth training that will make them attractive candidates for employers. They use an initiative technique to evaluate each person in order to determine how they can help them. AHRC NYW has connections all over the technology industry and they use these relationships to help these people with autism get internships and entry level jobs.
Brevard Achievement Center is another group that is working to help people with disabilities get jobs. They also work to find new opportunities for these people so that they can lead fulfilling and successful lives. They also work with young students so that they are prepared to handle moving into the workforce. Brevard works closely with its members and gives them opportunities to further educate themselves and prepare for job opportunities. They have expanded to several different states so that they can help as many people as possible.
Another success story of SourceAmerica’s Ideas to Work Fund is the Goodwill Easter Seals Miami Valley. This group works with veterans and connects them with employers in the local community. They connect all other veteran work groups together so that the system is more efficiently run. One veteran was hired as the assistant computer technician and he later received an award for his excellent job performance.
