Goal: All youth and adults with significant disabilities will have an informed choice of competitive, integrated and full wage employment options

• Over 110 people receiving services – Focus on individuals with I/DD and ASD

• Third Party Evaluation 9

Why Pathways? • There continues to be a deeply held doubt that community employment is possible for many of the individuals currently in segregated environments. • Staff need to not only be exposed to cutting edge, effective strategies but they will need to be mentored through the implementation of those strategies. • In order to align with the demands resulting from Employment First in most states, CMS rules, Rhode Island consent decree, Oregon consent decree and WIOA, models are needed that can address the larger numbers of individuals to be served.

Trends • The Commercial/Federal marketplace is too competitive to take a reactive approach. • Need for increased responsiveness, price competitiveness, quality & agility • Increased use of Hybrid & Partnering approaches – other NPAs, commercial partners, small business, etc. • Demand for integrated employment
