COMPETITIVE EMPLOYMENT SERVICES
Competitive Employment Services are offered by Viability in collaboration with The Oklahoma Developmental Disabilities Services, DDS and the Oklahoma Department of Rehabilitation Services, DRS in the Oklahoma City and Enid areas to individuals with a range of disabilities. Individuals with disabilities have hopes, potential and capabilities to live their lives fully and with purpose, and that includes employment opportunities. Viability has successfully provided those employment opportunities in our programs for five decades, and Oklahoma since 2014. We meet individuals where they are on their career paths and help them identify and reach employment milestones.
Viability is proud to partner with the state of Oklahoma as a service provider funded by Oklahoma’s DDS and DRS . Oklahoma is an employment first state, which shares our belief that all citizens, including those with significant disabilities, are capable of employment and full participation in community life, and should have access to the benefits. Working is good for our health and well-being. It contributes to our happiness, helps us to build connection, confidence and self-esteem, and supports us financially.
With the comprehensive training and job support services Viability provides a network of local employer partners, we successfully match local workforce needs with our program participants’ goals. As a result, our program participants are able to secure and retain work on their paths to greater independence, economic stability and career growth.
