    Project Summary

    The goal of this project is to build the capacity of service providers to implement job development programs more effectively. Community Gatepath (Gatepath) will accomplish this by creating an employment toolkit with resources for educating employers about the benefits of hiring people with disabilities. Our Business Development Manager will pilot use of the toolkit. We will then share the toolkit with other service providers and offer three training sessions. As a result, service providers throughout the Bay Area will be able to establish partnerships with new businesses, and more people with developmental disabilities will become employed.


The 2013 East Bay DD Legislative Coalition Town Hall Meeting was a great success! To learn more, please follow this link:
