What We Do
Nationwide, as many as 54 million Americans have a disability. Maybe your neighbor has an injury resulting from a motor vehicle accident, or your coworker has a child with cerebral palsy. Your grandmother may be recovering from a stroke — or maybe you are one of every five Americans with a disability. Look around you, and you’ll find people of all abilities who are vital participants in their communities despite the barriers they may encounter. The barriers, physical or otherwise, people with disabilities face begin with people’s attitudes — attitudes often rooted in misinformation and misunderstanding. Easterseals provides answers to help everyone create solutions that change lives… maybe even their own.
Our Employment Services team utilizes person centered planning, through a process known as “Discovery”, to identify a Job Seeker’s strengths, interests, and skills to support best job matches. A Customized Employment approach matches these talents and skills with potential employment opportunities to help employers with their unmet business needs. This results in a win-win relationship between our Job Seekers and Hawaii’s business community.
