Here at Work Ability our mission is too help individuals with disabilities to become more independent and learn basic skills. Also to learn how to get a job,How to keep one and what to expect when working at a job. Plus how they should behave or act when working at one. That way they can succeed in one later on in their future. We teach them many things like how to dress appropriately for work or an interview. How to use good hygiene before going to work. How to act in the work force and how to handle difficult situations. To not give up, work hard, and follow through with what they're doing. To teach them what a resume is and teach them new skills that they can learn to add to that resume and so on. The purpose is to help individuals with disabilities find a job and keep it by teaching them how to succeed in the work force.
