Fall 2017

Dear friends and colleagues,

October was National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) and the theme for this year is “Inclusion Drives Innovation.”  At the Sonoran UCEDD, we continue to work to increase opportunities for people with developmental and other disabilities, including increasing employment opportunity.  We are highlighting in this newsletter the work we do in partnership with the community to increase opportunities for youth and adults with disabilities and to share other employment resources and data. In breaking news, the Arizona Employment First Initiative coalition was successful in establishing an official Arizona chapter in development of the Association of People Supporting Employment First! 

As always, please let us know what you would like to see in future issues.

All the best,
