Centers for Independent Living:
Opportunity for Success as Employment Networks
As an Employment Network, you can derive income from doing
what you already do best, which is to help people with disabilities
get back in the rhythm of daily life, and that includes going to
work. If you offer any of the services listed here or if you are
interested in partnering with someone who does, you could
be tapping into a potential source of revenue from the Social
Security Administration’s Ticket to Work (TTW) Program.
TTW Milestone and Outcome Payments can help you expand
your services and potentially assist more people in obtaining their
employment goals and improving their quality of life.
