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

  • 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

  • Industry Expertise

    LinkEd has provided a number of highly valued supports to our organization over the last two years. Their knowledge and expertise of the long-term care industry has assisted us in developing innovative approaches to the delivery of managed long-term care, and has provided us with the tools necessary to assure our values truly align with our work. Their people-focused solutions have clarified our strategic direction and have led to significant impacts and outcomes.
    Mark K. Hilliker, Community Care Connections of Wisconsin

  • Lasting Impact

    Joe Erpenbeck has a unique ability to create a warm, welcoming and creative space for people to connect, share and learn together. Sharing practical tools and examples from elsewhere allowed the participants to leave the workshops and coaching sessions with renewed commitments to get to know people at a deeper level. It also gave them confidence to have asset based conversations and explore many ideas on how to support the expression of gifts recognizing that different approaches work for different people and situations.These are gifts that have lasting impacts as people begin to bring these practices into their everyday living, creating caring and contributing communities.
