As citizens of Johnson County, we all want jobs where our skills and strengths are recognized and valued. We work for many reasons including the ability to connect with others, earn an income and live the type of life we desire. We recognize that this is no different for the citizens of Johnson County with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We also recognize the contribution that this community can make to businesses in Johnson County.
