People with developmental disabilities make up the largest minority in the United States, yet they are also the most untapped workforce.

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 skilled job developers and a team of professionals who will determine whether they would benefit from an External Situational Assessment, where the person is able to work at a variety of businesses in an effort to evaluate the best possible working scenario; or whether they are prepared to immediately seek employment. 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.)
