Working Together

The Neil Squire Society's Working Together Program is a wage subsidy employment program for persons with disabilities. The program provides wage subsidy to employers who hire participants. While removing barriers and introducing potential employees to job opportunities, employers will experience the benefits of hiring persons with disabilities.

While working with employers, the Neil Squire Society will:

  • Subsidize wages for a minimum of six months
  • When needed, will provide the necessary worksite accommodations
  • Complete the paperwork!
  • Provide ongoing support for the duration of the contract

Employers have the opportunity to:

  • Provide an individual with a disability a part-time or full-time employment opportunity with the likelihood of long-term employment
  • Maintain contact with the Neil Squire Society staff and provide feedback to assist in the individual's professional development

There are many advantages to hiring someone with a disability through our Working Together Program. Examples are:

  • Eliminate the hiring and training costs of a new employee
  • Experience a reduced turnover rate when hiring someone with a disability
  • Learn the value of hiring an individual with a disability
  • Encourage a more diverse and inclusive working environment
  • An opportunity to learn a positive business case
