The Institute has scheduled two focus groups in December around the topic of employment.

To qualify for the focus groups, participants must be a Pennsylvanian who receives HCBS Waiver Services, must be competitively employed because of services and supports, or are interested in learning about competitive, integrated employment options, and want to share opinions about their experience with employment options for people with disabilities. Family members are welcome to participate as well.

Participants are asked to register for only one of the two dates:

The first focus group is scheduled for Friday, December 4, 2020 from noon to 1:30 p.m. and will be facilitated by Jamie Ray-Leonetti, the Institute's Associate Director of Policy.

Register for the December 4 focus group

The second focus group is on Friday, December 11 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and will be facilitated by the Institute's Mary Jones-Furlow.

Register for the December 11 focus group
