~~“In October 2016, the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) launched the Empowering through Employment Initiative to assist the growing number of individuals who express an interest in community-based employment.  According to National Core Indicators, 51% of individuals receiving home and community-based services express an interest to work in the community; however, fewer than 25% had a goal in their annual plan to support this interest and only 3% of individuals on a monthly basis have services authorized to assist with their employment pathway. “
