Policies and Programs

~~“This fifth annual report to the governor continues to document the task force’s progress as identified in the five goals outlined in the strategic plan.  Furthermore, this report continues to highlight the people behind the numbers who have overcome barriers and other challenges to achieve their goals in competitive, integrated employment.  These stories show that there is no common path to employment for people with disabilities, and that each person’s journey is unique. It’s important to highlight that for many people, the act of obtaining a job is not the end of the road, rather the beginning of a career path, the continuation on a journey to independence, and ultimately the hope for a better life.”
