Our Mission

Our mission is to provide exceptional, individualized, family-centered services to empower people with disabilities or special needs to achieve their goals and live independent, fulfilling lives.

Employment Services

Employment Works at ESH!  We believe that meaningful employment, a real job, is an important part of a successful life and strategic investments can create opportunity and economic stability.

Employment Services provides exceptional, individualized services supporting community integration through competitive employment. We believe that all people, regardless of labels or diagnoses (DD/ID, Autism, etc.), should have the opportunity to offer their talents to work in the community, if they so desire.

In collaboration with the Job Seeker and their Circle of Support, Employment Services utilizes person centered planning, through a process known as “Discovery”, to identify the 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 the Job Seeker and Hawaii’s business community.

“It’s Worth the Investment”…
