Learn How

I think it is very important to include people with disabilities in the work environment. Just because people with disabilities may seem different, we all need to feel like we belong to the community we live in. I believe our differences are what make a community strong!
Alisha Cloutier, Better Together Campaign

How We Help

  • Skillfully Combining Complex Perspectives

    There is a serious clash between leading-edge self-determined long term care and the growing government reliance on a managed health care model of payment and administration. LinkEd understands and shares the values that shape the best of what we know today in supporting individuals with disabilities and elders to live in their own homes and to be valued members of their communities. LinkEd has the unique experience and expertise to help managed care companies and other agencies to provide those services and supports in a cost-competitive manner. I am aware of no other consultant organization that so skillfully combines these complex perspectives.
    Dennis Harkins, A Simpler Way, Inc.

  • Grounded in Principle

    Julie Strenn and Kate Norby bring a wealth of knowledge and hands-on experience to their work at LinkEd. Their grounding in the principles of self-determination and community inclusion shines through in every aspect of their work.
    Fil Clissa, Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities

  • Radical Implications and Results

    Joe has created a small team of people who are moving from providing service to building community. His work has radical implications for social service and he has the results to show it.
    Peter Block, The Abundant Community
