WorkFirst supports individuals with disabilities to get and keep paid employment or to operate their own business. People with disabilities want real jobs with real pay and the same choices as their non disabled peers. The inability to find employment robs people with disabilities of financial security, equal social standing, self confidence and the opportunity to be contributing tax paying members of society.
WorkFirst, a division of Easter Seals Southern California, is committed to a future where people with disabilities are employed in jobs that are making the best use of their individual talents, where they are treated and viewed as any other employee would be, and the basic fundamental rights of everyday life are no longer out of reach.
WorkFirst has a service area covering all of Southern California. We support people who live and work in Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, San Diego and Imperial Counties.
WorkFirst provides the following services:
- Customized Supported Employment (individual placement only, no contract work, no subminimum wage)
- Direct Placement
- Microenterprise Development
