Workforce and Research Programs
The workforce and research programs at SourceAmerica are focused on our beneficiaries—people with disabilities. We conduct research, run projects, and develop programs to make significant progress toward our goal of full and fair employment for people with disabilities.
Pathways to Careers
Pathways to Careers (Pathways) is a program that connects individuals with disabilities to internships that match their skills and interests. Pathways promotes informed choice and upward mobility.
Quality Work Environment (QWE)
The Quality Work Environment identifies, shares, and executes employer best practices so employees with significant disabilities receive enhanced vocational opportunities, improved wages, and increased upward mobility. It is a continuous improvement process that can be tailored to the needs of each nonprofit agency in the SourceAmerica network and its employees.
Employee Research System (ERS)
The Employee Research System (ERS) tracks the employment of people with significant disabilities over time. This nationwide database enables analysis of individual employee-level outcomes for AbilityOne employees receiving services from Community Rehabilitation Programs (CRPs).
