Employment Works Program

Today, Employment Works, housed at the Kelly Smith Employment Center, is proud to assist people with mild to severe disabilities - adults, as well as an expanding population of youth - as they pursue meaningful employment that suits their choices and preferences.

Did you know...

  • People with disabilities (21 to 64 years old) experience unemployment at an average rate of  69%. They are a motivated and under-utilized labor force.
  • Colorado businesses that partner with Employment Works report that they gain a competitive edge. Explore what new approaches to employment and employing people from non-traditional labor sources can do for your business.
  • Employment Works serves both individuals and businesses in the Denver Metro area and throughout Colorado, providing a broad spectrum of tools and resources and vibrant partnerships.

Please join us at Wine in the Pines, and help us put people with disabilities to work.
