Providing a platform for adults with disabilities to gain transferable workforce development skills through KAA microenterprises

Opportunities

New Opportunities Every Day

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2021, less than 19.1 percent of persons with a disability were employed. At KAA, we want to help boost that number by providing a platform for adults with disabilities to gain transferable workforce development skills. By practicing these skills in a natural environment, our participants have a greater chance of obtaining competitive integrated employment in their community. These skills range from simple, repetitive tasks, to roles that require experience and technical know-how.

Job Support Waiver Programs

Ken Anderson Alliance supported employment programs are tailored to each person’s career goals, skills and interests. Our assistance and services help our participants find and maintain jobs.

Because Work Matters

Everyone deserves a chance to gain job skills so they can become independent and enjoy life. Unfortunately, it can be hard for adults with disabilities to find employment opportunities. KAA understands the importance of workforce development skills training, job seeking, and attainment skills.

Through our WORK programs, the Ken Anderson Alliance:

  • Helps adults with disabilities develop independence and self-esteem.
  • Partners with other community agencies to increase our impact.
  • Fights back against social isolation and loneliness.
  • Fosters higher achievement and builds job skills.
