Empowerment is the process that allows one to gain the knowledge, skill-sets and attitude needed to cope with the changing world and the circumstances in which one lives. Empowerment increases the personal or collective power of individuals and communities. Options for Success exists to empower people with disabilities by providing them information, resources, and support needed to obtain meaningful employment.
Social equality exists when all people within a society or group have the same status in respect to opportunities. The right to work and earn a living is something we believe in and promote. Options for Success supports all people to access employment opportunities. We believe that all people have gifts and talents to share and that our communities and businesses prosper from a diverse workforce made up of individuals from all walks of life.
The cornerstone of Options for Success is supporting people in their journey to find meaningful employment in our community. We believe that people with disabilities have unique abilities that can benefit our local workforce, given the right job match and needed accommodations. Our goal is to empower job seekers with information and resources that will help them in their journey towards success!
