Community Employment

Summit DD partners with state agencies (like Ohio Means Jobs) and providers to create a team that will support your employment goals. If employment interests you, talk to your SSA or RSS. Your SSA or RSS can connect you to the resources that can help you assess your interests and skills, help you build skills, prepare for interviews, assist with your resume and employment paperwork as well as on-the-job assistance.

Summit DD also facilitates the Summit County Employment Collaborative, which is a network of providers and local employers aimed at helping people obtain community-based jobs. The collaborative shares information, contacts and leads about local job openings and then provides support to the job seeker and the employer.

Get inspired by these success stories from others who made employment in the community one of their goals.
