People with disabilities can be employed in the community and earn competitive wages

Santa Barbara Employment Services

People with developmental disabilities make up the largest minority in the United States, yet they are also the most untapped workforce. UCP WORK, Inc. has been recognized as the leading provider of personalized job development and job placement services. UCP WORK, Inc. increases opportunities for people with disabilities by enabling them to become active, productive members of the workforce.

Individuals who are seeking employment meet with our skilled job developer to determine whether that person would benefit from an External Situational Assessment, where the person works at a variety of job sites in an effort to evaluate the best possible working scenario; or whether that person is prepared to immediately enter the workforce at a Partner Employer. Once a career path is developed, the job developers assist individuals in the interview process, while providing ongoing job preparation skills (i.e. appropriate work attire, teamwork, employer/employee relations, appropriate work behavior, etc.)
