IT’s My Job It’s My Life!: Employment First for Alabamians with Disabilities


~~“The Alabama Disabilities Advocacy Program (ADAP) is part of the nationwide federally-funded protection and advocacy system. Our mission is to provide quality, legally-based advocacy services to Alabamians with disabilties to protect, promote, and expand their rights. …

In the past year ADAP staff has visited sheltered workshops across the state. We observed activities and talked with people with disabilities. Over and over, those people told us they want to work. They want real jobs and they want to make real wages. It is time to listen to what they are telling us and put “Employment First”.
