“Build Inclusion is a placement provider for individuals with disabilities who are seeking employment. This service can assist a candidate in finding competitive, integrated employment well-suited to individual skills, strengths, interests and talents. We start by helping to develop a person-centered employment placement (PCEP) report that is unique to each candidate. The PCEP will guide the candidate’s job exploration and development. Then, we support the placed employee for the first 90 days on the job. We look forward to discovering how you may qualify for these services!”
