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

  • 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

  • Complete Training Development and Support

    When Opportunity Inc. made the decision to provide Community Supportive Living (CSL) support, we reached out to LinkEd for assistance with the creation of training materials for our employees. LinkEd has outdone themselves: they have shared their combined knowledge and experience during every facet of the journey, led trainings for our leadership team, created a training module for CSL staff, and they have supported leadership and staff to understand how to overcome the unique challenges with innovative and creative ideas and implementation plans. LinkEd has been supportive and professional to all of our staff, from our front-line caregivers and their supervisors, to the entire leadership team.
    Sara Satterfield, Opportunities, Inc.

  • Key Connections and Resources

    It has been a pleasure and honor working with LinkEd. Both Julie and Kate have a vast knowledge of Wisconsin’s Long-term Care system and have established state and national connections. These key resources, along with their ability to always have innovative, professional, and solution-focused perspectives, has aided our organization in successfully moving through some significant changes over the last year and half. Their focus on relationship building and collaborative approaches is very refreshing, and continues to support our organizational values.
    Kris Kubnick, Community Care Connections of Wisconsin
