VIDEO: Finding and keeping a job in the community

Sometimes finding a job can be tough. But with determination and the right supports, people with developmental disabilities are finding work in the community.

The latest video from the Southwestern Ohio Regional Council of Governments and the WORKing Together Collaborative focuses on families and what others can do to help people set goals and succeed, including:

  • Self-Advocacy
  • Local agency support
  • School teams and planning
  • Parent/Family member support and input

It features Chelsia Carter, who works at McDonald’s and The Arbors, Zachariah McCall, who works at Panera Bread, Garrett Doerr, who works at Kroger, and Rachel Rice, who works three jobs — one at a transportation company, another at Production Services Unlimited, and one at the Warren County Court of Common Pleas.
