Do-All Inc.’s Employment Services team is dedicated to assisting businesses in their effort to ensure a diverse workplace. We work with individuals with disabilities to assess their talents, skills and abilities, and then match them with employer’s hiring needs.
Individual placement and supported employment are services that assist an individual to get, learn and keep a paid job/career in a community work setting where most of their co-workers are persons without disabilities. Paid work may be full time or part time.
Supported self-employment is small business development and ownership that is nurtured from its “dream” stage to fruition by a support team.
On the job evaluation services are tailored to meet the consumer’s need, and are consistent with the Individual Plan for Employment. These services can be provided within our facility or out in the community.
