Career Seekers With Disabilities

Welcome to CareerSource Broward, the right place with the right people. Our Disability Success Coaches can assist you with access to services at our centers, connect you with other resources for disabled workers in the community, and provide opportunities to meet with employers who are committed to hiring people with disabilities.

If you are between the ages of 18 and 64 who is receiving SSI and/or SSDI due to a disability, you may be interested in our
Ticket to Work Program. The Program is designed to remove barriers that previously influenced people’s decisions about going to work because of their concerns over losing health care coverage. The goal is to increase opportunities and choices for Social Security disability beneficiaries to become gainfully employed by providing information on employment, training and rehabilitation resources, support services and disability health insurance benefits.

If interested in any of these services or programs, please contact our staff at
