Ohio’s Employment First celebrates third anniversary

Last week marked the three-year anniversary of Ohio’s Employment First Initiative.

“Since the signing of the Executive Order, there has been an increase of more than 1,000 people with developmental disabilities who are working in the community, according to data reported by County Boards of DD. This represents an almost 16 percent increase since the inception of the Employment First initiative in Ohio,” said Kristen Helling, DODD lead person for the Employment First initiative.
