Arizona Employment First

The Sonoran Center for Excellence in Disabilities leads statewide coordination to promote and implement Employment First in Arizona, in collaboration with the many partners committed to employment for Arizonans with disabilities.

Arizona Employment First means that competitive integrated employment is the expectation for all Arizonans who have a disability. It supports an overarching goal that persons who have a disability will have access to integrated work settings most appropriate for them, including the support necessary to help them succeed in the workplace.
