OUR PROGRAMS & SERVICES

COMMUNITY EMPLOYMENT

Through its Community Employment Services (CES) program, CCDS strives to fully integrate adults with disabilities into meaningful jobs in a wide variety of professions. This empowers our individuals while educating the broader community of the significant contribution these adults can make in the workplace.

CCDS facilitates the process every step of the way by providing pre-screened applicants, customized job placement, and ongoing onsite training and support.
