Habitat for Humanity Newfoundland and Labrador has been a great partner of the Career and Educational Services Department at Easter Seals. Over the years, Habitat for Humanity has given many of our Horizons participants the opportunity to develop their skills at their ReStore and now they are building on their reputation as an inclusive employer by hiring a fantastic employee, Emily, through the Opportunities Fund for People with Disabilities Program.
‘At Habitat, we believe that people just need the right opportunity to reach their full potential. Whether it’s affordable homeownership or inclusive employment, we are proud to be a hand up in the process’, comments ReStore Manager, Jon Rossiter.
It is supportive employers, like Habitat for Humanity, that increase workforce participation for those who identify as having a disability.
If you are a person who identifies as having a disability seeking employment or an employer who is currently hiring and are interested in how the Opportunities Fund for Persons with Disabilities can help, contact Paula Hayes ([email protected]) or Rachel Warren ([email protected]) by email, or by calling (709) 754-1399.
Our goal is to provide persons of all ages with physical, cognitive, and any other disabilities with the opportunity to participate in programs and services that aim to build inclusion in Newfoundland and Labrador.
