This new year, ReEmployAbility will continue to share stories leading with the good and spotlighting our nonprofit partners who are making a true impact in their communities. We are proud to say that our Transition2Work program continues to make a difference in the lives of the injured participants and the nonprofits they fulfill their modified duties for.

Do You Know Who Got Game?

If there is a nonprofit that understands the importance of providing employment assistance to people with disabilities, it’s the nonprofit Who Got Game. This organization’s mission is to create employment and housing opportunities while building a healthier community through education and awareness for the area’s most vulnerable people. Who Got Game understands that every child and adult has something to offer. The volunteers and staff make it their goal to provide services that can enhance a person’s personal or professional life. Through peer mentorship and employment assistance services, the organization serves people who are ready to start their careers, or who may have found challenges in the past due to a physical or mental disability. Recently, Who Got Game has joined Emory University’s “180 Degrees Consulting” program! The organization will now receive consulting services from its university branch, which would aid the nonprofit in overcoming any challenges it may face in order to achieve its full potential.

Transition2Work is a Team Player

ReEmployAbility’s Transition2Work program provides nonprofits like Who Got Game with valuable assistance through our modified to light-duty return-to-work services fulfilled by our program participants. Founder Kraig McHardy describes our Transition2Work program as, “a tremendous asset!” He goes on to state, “It allows us to meet the needs of our organization by providing volunteers who can assist in creating a database of potential employers to effectively match our transitioning students with a career suited to their abilities.” Our program participants have the flexibility to impact their community with Who Got Game while not jeopardizing their health as they recover.

It is important to the organization and its staff to “help make the generational change for people with disabilities.” As a large population of disabled people make up the unemployed, incarcerated, and obese demographics in the world, it is imperative that they are given just as much opportunity as anyone else to better themselves academically, personally, and professionally. We are honored that Transition2Work can help in that mission.
