October is Disability Employment Awareness Month. On this week’s episode of Speak Up Arkansas, we have two of our favorite guests, DRA’s Jen Goodwin and Mollie Hernandez, back with us.
Jen, a staff attorney, and Mollie, a rehabilitation counselor, work together every day to help people with disabilities find and maintain competitive, integrated employment. They help people access the education, skills, tools and resources they need to live and work independently. They conduct trainings, speak at conferences, and provide hours of legal and technical assistance – all with the goal of helping people with disabilities find and keep real work, for competitive pay.
Jen and Mollie are experts in the field. But in this episode of Speak Up Arkansas, they share with us their personal experience – both women acquired disabilities in adulthood, and had to rethink and restart their lives and careers.
Jen and Mollie share what it was like for them to start over after a disability – and where to find help if you need it. Because as they remind us, anyone can become a person with a disability.
This month’s episode will air tonight at 5:30 p.m., CST on KABF 88.3 FM, livestream the show at kabf.org – and you can find the recording on our website tomorrow!
Jen and Mollie, and all of us at DRA, are here to help you reach your goals! Give us a call toll-free at 800-482-1174 or visit us online at DisabilityRightsAR.org to learn more about how we can help you get the tools you need to succeed.
