Integrated employment is the first priority of Employment First. The preferred outcome of the initiative is for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities that are job-ready and seeking to join the workforce obtain employment with an employer at or above minimum wage or generate earnings through self-employment. Maximum self-sufficiency through full integration into the community workforce is the desired end result of these efforts.
