Employment First

Employment First means that employment should be the first and preferred option for all people, regardless of their disability. The DD Network is part of a statewide coalition advocating for legislation that would make Georgia an Employment First state. This means that throughout Georgia’s social service system, meaningful employment would become a primary objective for all working-age Georgians with disabilities. More than 26 states have Employment First policies.
