AWS Employment Services has placed more than 2,100 individuals with disabilities in community jobs in the last five years.
Work. It gives life structure and meaning and fosters dignity and self-esteem. At AWS, we understand the importance of work and offer a variety of services designed to help people with disabilities develop confidence, new skills and new experiences through work.
Employment Services and Follow Along
From job seeking to job training to continued support, AWS helps individuals find community employment that puts money in their pockets and enriches their lives. We start by helping individuals identify their goals, then help them through the search and interview process, provide training if necessary, and continue to support them throughout their employment.

While community inclusion is at the heart of our mission, we understand that not everyone can begin with community employment. Our Industrial Operations program gives individuals an opportunity to gain hands-on experience, vocational training and job skills development in a production environment.
