Transportation: Getting to Work
Tuesday, October 17, 2017 07:00:00 PM UTC
October's Grassroots Group online meeting topic is transportation. To have a full and meaningful life, people with disabilities need access to their community and this means transportation to and from where ever they want to go. Without reliable, affordable, and safe transportation, people may be limited to where they find a job. Unreliable transportation can impact an employee’s job performance. Our October discussion will focus on solutions that have been used in Florida and across the nation to improve transportation for individuals with disabilities. If you missed previous Grassroots Group meetings, you may download materials and watch the recordings at http://www.employmentfirstfl.org/ grassroots-group.
