Training Presentations


Employment allows people an opportunity to be a part of their community, gain earned income, enhance skills and knowledge, and increase their self-esteem and independence, regardless of disability status. Every person’s employment journey is specific to them and the services they receive are no different. The employment services offered through ECF CHOICES ensure that each person receives the type of supports they need to be successful. Services are individualized, person-centered and allow the person the autonomy to decide what and how their employment journey will look.
