The Interfaith Disability Advocacy Coalition, of which Christian Reformed Disability Concerns is a member, has produced helpful resources for congregations. Use the Bulletin Insert to raise awareness in your congregation and the Suggested Steps for Congregations to expand employment opportunities for people with disabilities in your community.
Many people with disabilities would like to work. Work, paid or volunteer, brings dignity, self-respect and responsibility and lack of work can be demoralizing, socially isolating, and wasteful of a person’s abilities. Poverty often accompanies disability and lack of employment may mean that adequate food, housing and medical care are not attainable.
