Mission: The mission of ServiceSource is to deliver exceptional services to individuals with disabilities through innovative and valued employment, training, habilitation, housing and support services.
Programs: ServiceSource is a leading nonprofit disability resource organization with programs located in ten states and the District of Columbia and subcontracted operations employing individuals with disabilities in over 30 states. Nationwide, ServiceSource serves more than 17,000 people with disabilities annually. More than 1,000 of these individuals are directly employed by ServiceSource on affirmative employment contracts with federal or state government agencies, or commercial businesses. In addition, ServiceSource’s job placement programs assist hundreds of individuals with disabilities to obtain jobs with other community employers.
Thousands of other individuals with disabilities receive transitional rehabilitation services, including job evaluation and job development, skills training, school-to-work transition services, linkages to other community resources and benefits and financial counseling. ServiceSource offers specialized services for veterans with combat related disabilities transitioning to civilian life, individuals diagnosed on the autism spectrum looking to enhance self-sufficiency, and seniors acquiring disabilities as they age.
ServiceSource also provides long-term services to individuals needing more intensive supports. These programs include day habilitation centers that serve individuals who have significant physical, medical and intellectual disabilities, with a focus on community integration and person-centered activities, including expressive therapies.
Through developing strategic partnerships with local community businesses, government entities and nonprofits, ServiceSource helps bridge the gaps for individuals with disabilities, creating sustainable opportunities that benefit the entire community and result in greater independence for the individual.
I have known ServiceSource for many years, going back to when they were Fairfax Opportunities Unlimited. Their service to those with disabilities is unmatched and the quality of their employees work product is excellent. I was with a community bank that hired five employees for a signature card imaging project. Their results were so impressive that the bank hired 3 or 4 of them (sorry, I cannot recall the exact number). I am privileged to say I know this organization. --Bruce Tria
