Paraquad’s Employment Program offers assistance and support to help individuals with disabilities receive training, obtain a career and be a successful employee. We work closely with those involved in the program to develop a plan that meets the individual’s goals and needs.
Individuals must be referred by a Missouri Department of Vocational Rehabilitation counselor or have a Ticket to Work assigned to Paraquad in order to receive our employment services.
