The Employment Collaboratives are Riverside led partnerships of provider organizations and state agencies working to improve employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities. These cross disability initiatives focus on a collaborative approach to engage a wide variety of employers within a given region. Our efforts are focused on job development, broadening the types of employers providing opportunities for our consumers, and enhancing access to career-oriented training resources.
