OUR MISSION SERVICES EMPOWER PEOPLE

MISSION SERVICES

We believe that people with disabilities are an integral part of our society, our businesses, and our lives. We believe that everyone has the capacity to work, and that there is a place for a person with disabilities in every business in America. To support the people we serve to the best of our abilities, we focus our mission services into three areas:

WHY DO WE SUCCEED?

Because our success is measured by yours. You’re an individual. Your pathway to employment should be as unique as you are.
Here at AtWork!, we understand that every person is different. It is our job to find and celebrate your unique talents that make you, you. We celebrate your skills and abilities and use them to help you find your career because our services are:

PERSONALIZED

Everyone starts with their own individual and detailed evaluation and plan. We listen to your hopes, dreams, and career aspirations to begin understanding the opportunities ahead. We work with you to create the perfect plan just for you and keep it updated regularly to keep us on the track to success.

PROFESSIONAL

The AtWork! staff are trained professionals. Our employment staff are proactive and communicative, ensuring you’re never without support. We form respectful partnerships that recognize and honor the contributions, expectations, and successes of all partners.

INNOVATIVE

AtWork! is known for alternative, strategic approaches to traditional employment that work to turn the ordinary into something extraordinary. We get jobs for people others consider unemployable.

CARING

AtWork! delivers compassionate, dedicated support that appreciates and values each individual’s unique attribute. When we say that your success is our success, we really mean it.

CARF

AtWork! is very please to have our programs accredited by CARF, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. We have achieved a three-year accreditation, the highest level offered by CARF, in all of our accreditation surveys.

Every three years, CARF sends a team of professionals in the rehabilitation field out to AtWork!’s Bellevue and Issaquah locations to conduct an on-site survey. While they are here, they do interviews with staff, the people we serve, and board members. They also survey our facilities, look at our business practices, and determine the degree to which AtWork! is meeting international standards of rehabilitation practice. Achieving a three-year accreditation means that AtWork! is substantially in compliance with all standards.
