North Carolina Business Leadership Network
“As a business to business network, the North Carolina Business Leadership Network (NCBLN) will support the business community with information and resources to: source, hire and promote people with disabilities; to do business with organizations owned and operated by people with disabilities; and to market their products and services in an accessible manner to people with disabilities, across the State of North Carolina.”
The Arc sees every person with a disability as a potential employee. In fact, Supported Employment, as defined at the federal level, is designed as a service reserved for people with the most severe disabilities. We believe everyone can work and it is up to us to make the right job match that will promote employment success for each person. Our Employment Services have supported hundreds of individuals with significant disabilities in becoming successfully employed, productive members of our communities.
