NORTH LITTLE ROCK -- Arkansas Rehabilitation Services (ARS), a division of the Arkansas Department of Career Education, is hosting “Community Connections” at its North Little Rock field office on Friday, June 23, 2017, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The office is located at 3901 McCain Park Drive, Suite 113, in North Little Rock. This is a free event.
This is ARS’ opportunity to share all of the services it offers individuals with disabilities. The division provides a wide range of services to Arkansans with intellectual, physical, and sensory disabilities in obtaining and keeping meaningful jobs in today’s workforce. It is ARS’ goal for the community to walk away with a wealth of information and a greater understanding of what it does and how it can help the citizens find meaningful employment.
The event also continues the celebration of the 26th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, created to eliminate discrimination and to foster equal opportunity for people with disabilities in every aspect of life. This legislation outright prohibits discrimination in employment, state and local government services, public accommodations, and transportation. ARS prides itself on leading clients to their desired career fields and providing them with the tools they need to function independently.
