People often ask me what is the “Secret Sauce” for helping individuals with disabilities and Veterans to get jobs. Whether you are in a wheelchair, are suffering from PTSD, recovering from substance abuse, have a learning disability or any other type of challenge, having job search support is the “Secret Sauce” towards finding employment.

The job search process today has become more complex and learning how to navigate the system requires the assistance of professionals trained to customize the job search process to the disability. At ICD, we provide the support necessary to help our clients reach their goals.

ICD is an organization with a history rich in experience helping those with barriers and challenges to work. In 1917, ICD commenced its work helping returning disabled World War I Veterans re-enter the workforce, becoming productive members of their communities. All of this happened because ICD provided the job search support that is vitally necessary for individuals who have barriers and challenges to work. As a matter of fact, ICD originated outpatient rehabilitation methodology of helping Individuals With Disabilities.
