Description

The Southeast ADA Center, Georgia APSE, and Washington Initiative for Supported Employment (WISE) are working together to promote Employment First in the state of Georgia.

“We believe that employment enriches and adds meaning to every life, and that workplaces and communities are enhanced when they embrace differences.”
