Job Placement Sustainability Unit

The Job Placement and Sustainability Unit (JPSU) operates under UMID providing the opportunity for the development of employability skills and securing employment for persons with disabilities. The JPSU team works tirelessly to train clients for work that aligns with each individual's hopes, talents and abilities. The program is not exclusive to alumni of UMID programs but open to every individual with a disability who wants to work. Through the development of skills to enhance employability and matching qualified candidates with businesses we help clients discover the potential for life-long work opportunities.

In keeping with the guiding principles of the Institute on Disability, we envision a more diverse and inclusive future where all people are equipped with the skills and free to be a contributing part of their communities.  We at the JPSU hope to incite this change by working to empower those with disabilities and creating opportunities for finding purpose in meaningful work.
