Organizational Employment

UCP of Greater Cleveland’s Organizational Employment Program is designed to foster personal financial independence for adults with moderate to severe disabilities.  Individuals are encouraged to accept vocational and social challenges within an integrated setting with the least restrictions possible.  Participant needs are assessed through a person-centered planning process and reviewed periodically for progress in meeting stated goals.
