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.
If you need assistance or would like more information on finding a job for someone with I/DD, please call us in New Castle County at 302-996-9400 or in Kent and Sussex Counties at 302-736-6140.
If you are an employer who would like information about providing jobs to individuals with I/DD, please call us at 302-996-9400.
