The Arc of Delaware is committed to reducing the high unemployment rate of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
Through our Employment program, we work closely with the Delaware Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) and the Delaware Division of Developmental Disabilities Services (DDDS) to identify jobs in the community best suited to individuals.
Based on skills, ability levels, and choice, these jobs may be full-time or part-time, permanent or temporary. In all cases, we provide the supports needed for individuals to succeed, such as job coaching, goal setting and soft skills improvement.
We also help identify and pursue options in the community, such as internships or volunteer positions, for people who need help building the skills that lead to employment.
Please contact us at (302) 996-9400 if you are a person with IDD who needs assistance or information on finding a job, or if you are an employer who would like to know more about providing jobs to individuals with IDD.
