The Arc of Delaware is committed to reducing the high unemployment of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Through our Employment program, we work closely with the Delaware Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and the Delaware Division of Developmental Disabilities to identify jobs in the community best suited to individuals. Based on skills, ability levels, and choice, these jobs may be full-time or part-time, permanent or temporary. In all cases, we provide the supports needed for individuals to succeed, such as job coaching, goal setting and soft skills improvement. We also help identify and pursue options in the community, such as internships or volunteer positions, for individuals who need help building the skills that lead to employment.
