HHS is committed to ensuring people with disabilities have access to meaningful employment services in the community, especially integrated competitive employment.

All About APSE

The Association of People Supporting Employment First (APSE) is the only national organization focused exclusively on Employment First to facilitate the full inclusion of people with disabilities in the workplace and community.

APSE members recognize that everyone has abilities to contribute and their work should be recognized and rewarded with fair pay, creating inclusive workplaces. Employment enriches and adds meaning to every life, and workplaces and communities are enhanced when they embrace differences.

HHS has developed a brochure for people with a disability who want to learn about competitive, integrated employment in the community. The brochure contains information on Employment First, the employment services offered through Health and Human Services programs and how going to work may affect Social Security benefits and health care coverage.
