Employment provides people with disabilities a sense of dignity and purpose. Ray Graham Association partners with hundreds of businesses and institutions throughout DuPage and the surrounding counties to help people with disabilities find a job and find the right fit. People find the financial independence a new job offers through interview training, resume writing, and learning to dress for success. Skills like navigating public transportation and connecting to natural supports contribute to the 90% retention rate for employment seekers.
Our team members assess each person’s strengths and interests so that their job not only provides a steady paycheck but provides opportunities for growth and advancement. Importantly, we work with people, their families, and civil-service employees to ensure that benefits like Social Security are not adversely affected. After a person we support finds a job they love, their employment specialist continues to provide support so that they can keep it!
