  • A LITTLE ABOUT LiveWorkPlay the org and how we realized and were frustrated at the lack of resources we had to help people get paid work, <br /> We serve about 100 people with intellectual disabilities a year – noting that a few of the people we are supporting reach a point in their lives where they are just plain done with the system – they’ve got a job, a home, and a network of natural supports, rendering agency support redundant. The only thing that trumps big moments like a person we are supporting getting their first job or their first apartment is the moment when they tell us “It’s been nice, but I’m not sure I need you anymore.” Shouldn’t that really be our goal – even if we might not always get there? So one test of our outcomes is to ask “Are we reducing or increasing systems dependency?” We are now seen again as innovative <br />

  • Another way we reach out and share success stories is social media--

Connecting with youth who are still in high school has been a key learning of ours. Helping youth get summer jobs with the hopes of leading to employment upon high school graduation is one way to level the playing field.
