Employers Services

Since 1980, Cares of Washington has offered Services for Employers who wish to add valuable employees to their workforce. Through the relationships built by the companies and Cares, many individuals with disabilities are realizing their dream to become employed and attain self-sufficiency. The relationships developed while working benefit the individual, the employer and the community. Other benefits to employers include:

  • Pre-screened referrals (by Cares)
  • No-cost recruiting – no agency fees
  • Job-ready applicants
  • Highly motivated employees
  • Ongoing support from Cares staff
  • Information about Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Job coaching and consultation specific to the participant’s disability
  • Increased workforce diversity

Connect for Success
