Achieving Employment Goals


What can we do if the necessary services are not available in our area or region?

On an individual basis, you might see if the service is available at a nearby area that your family member can reach and apply for services in that area. You can explore the possibility of the funding agency providing access in another area.
If there is nothing similar or accessible, join other families and advocates to approach the decision-makers about the needed vocational services. Be persistent and carry your message to administrators and legislators. Your family member deserves the supports that are needed to get employment.
