Employment for People with Disabilities and Criminal Histories

- Identify ways to overcome barriers to employment for people with disabilities and a criminal history
- Use the “Gateway to Careers” program to help individuals assess their own interests, skills, and abilities, as well as conduct labor market research and develop resumes
