Ohio’s Vision:

Working-age adults are working and thriving in their careers.

Employment First is a philosophy that presumes that all Ohioans, including people with significant disabilities, can and should have opportunities to work in the community. We value diversity and want to make our workforce and community stronger by including and valuing all people.
