Through community collaboration and partnership with local employers and service agencies we strive to increase the number of people with developmental disabilities employed in a competitive work environment. Together, we identify, educate and recruit businesses in St. Charles County, St. Louis City and St. Louis County to employ people with developmental disabilities while providing the following services:

  • Disability and diversity awareness training
  • Recruitment and hiring
  • Pre-screened candidates
  • Job and task analysis
  • Job coaching and retention


Our ultimate goal is to support the business community by providing creative solutions to staffing needs, a ready pool of qualified applications and ongoing support to employees.  In turn, business partners gain valuable and dedicated employees, develop a stronger understanding of support systems and achieve diversity goals through inclusive practices.
