Employment First: A Public Forum on Employment Services for Individuals with Disabilities in RI

March 14, 2014
Over two decades ago, Rhode Island made its place in history by becoming one of the first states in the nation to eliminate residential institutional care, and embrace community integration, for people with developmental disabilities.
Now Rhode Island is poised again to prove itself a leader in human services by providing employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities in their communities through the Employment First initiative.
Employment First promotes community-based, integrated employment as the first option for employment services for individuals with disabilities, providing them with the same opportunities and responsibilities as all other citizens.
On Wednesday, March 19th, 2014, The Family Advocacy Network of Rhode Island will be hosting a session with representatives from the Department of Behavioral Healthcare, Developmental Disabilities and Hospitals (BHDDH) to discuss Employment First policy, goals and outcomes. The session will take place at the offices of the Community Provider Network of RI (CPNRI) located at 110 Jefferson Blvd., in Warwick.
The Family Advocacy Network is a statewide group of family members, individuals & friends working together to secure adequate funding for supports for those who are developmentally disabled.
