Good News Friday!

It’s no secret that organizations like Imagine! are having a tough time recruiting Direct Support Professionals to help create a world of opportunity for all abilities. I have written about this challenge before.

However, one of the things that inspires me about working for Imagine! is the many ways that we come together as a team when facing challenges, and how we look for unique and creative ways to solve our problems.

One way we’ve been working to alleviate our workforce shortage is through hosting job fairs and open houses, where potential employees are invited to visit our work sites, meet potential co-workers, and take advantage of on-the-spot job interviews.

In the past few months, we’ve hosted several of these events, and the early returns are promising. It won’t solve all of our workforce issues, but it sure helps.

We have several planned for the coming weeks, including job fairs for our Adult Day and Employment Programs, our Residential Program, and for our Summer Camp for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Details for these upcoming events are below. Feel free to join us or share the information with someone who might be interested in a career with meaning.

And if you can't make it to one of the fairs, check out our jobs page here.
