Employment & Community First Choices

Employment & Community First CHOICES

Employment and Community First CHOICES is for people of all ages who have an intellectual or developmental disability (I/DD).  This includes people who have significant disabilities.

Services help people with I/DD gain as much independence as possible.  People are supported to live with their family or in the community, not in an institution.  Residential services are available for adults with I/DD who do not live with family but need support where they live. 

Employment and Community First CHOICES can help the person with I/DD explore the possibility of working.  Services can also help people learn skills for work, find a job, and keep a job.  This could be a part-time job, a full-time job or self-employment.  Working helps people earn money, learn new skills, meet new people, and play an important role in their communities.  Work can also help people stay healthy and build self-confidence.

Other services help people learn and do things at home and in the community that help people achieve their goals.  If a person lives at home with their family, the services help the family support the person to become as independent as possible.  Services also help people get actively involved in their communities and include peer supports for the person and for the family.
