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.

  • Truly Usable Deliverables

    As a non-profit leader, partnering with LinkEd has been a true joy. Both Julie and Kate have provided LSS with support and planning assistance with the transition out of residential services for persons with disabilities and supported us in building new services expanding the groups of people we serve. Their knowledge of the multiple systems in Wisconsin and true belief in self-direction/determination was essential to our working relationship. LinkEd listened to our needs, partnered with us to achieve our goals, and provided truly usable deliverables that assisted LSS in moving forward with a firm foundation of service and training.
    Rita Wiersma, Lutheran Social Services of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan
