Employment First Initiative

In an effort to better support people with disabilities through community-based integrated employment, Virginia’s Employment First Initiative requires that service providers offer the option of helping and individual into an employment status first before offering other services. Virginia has long led the way by engaging individuals with disabilities in employment-related activities and providing effective, person-centered services. Employment First is the next and very essential step in our history of helping people with disabilities reach their fullest potential through improved employment opportunities.
