Welcome to WorkAbility
Empowering local people with special needs to gain meaningful employment and live a life of purpose and inclusion in a business that cares about people and our planet.
What We Are Planning
WorkAbility Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) supported employment organization, registered to receive donations in Florida. We will provide work skills training, developed around specific learning goals, with wrap around person centered support services for people with special needs in the Oviedo, FL and surrounding areas. People supported by WorkAbility will start out their employment journey working at Eco-Ability, our social enterprise store that will be open to the public, offering supported employment jobs within a business that looks to remove single use plastics and reduce our negative environmental impact. It will be both a physical and online store where you can REFILL home, bath, body and office products, purchase food and other goods by weight in containers you REUSE and ensure that we REVALUE people that are differently abled, to ensure they live a life of inclusion and dignity. We plan to open the doors to our new supported employment business in 2022. See the Join Us page for how you can get involved!
What WorkAbility Will Offer
Helping local people with special needs to gain and retain meaningful, paid employment in an on-site business.
For local people with special needs that want to build some confidence first, before stepping into a paid job.
Wrap Around Services
We know that getting a job is just one piece of the puzzle. WorkAbility will offer other supports like confidence building, interview skills training, financial management, travel training and more.
