Employment Services Division

The Employment Services Division (ESD) at Mountain State Centers for Independent Living (MTSTCIL) works with people with disabilities to assist them in entering or re-entering the workforce. We work with people with disabilities to help them develop an employment goal, receive training, attend classes and develop a resume as well as the skills necessary to successfully seek and retain employment.

Our services and programs are designed around the needs and choices of each individual served. Each individual is involved in the planning and development of their individual independent living and employment plan.
