The purpose of this video is to highlight how DPNs facilitated the One-Stop Career Center (Montgomery Works, Wheaton Maryland) becoming a universally accessible, welcoming services delivery site, where all people (including people with a range of disabilities) can feel welcome, receive seamless, integrated, accessible and quality services that ultimately results in quality jobs -- non-stereotypical, pays above minimum wage, provides career pathways, etc. The One-Stop Career Center customer featured in this video is a disabled veteran. The podcast interview will show the positive impact of the DPN on the: One-Stop Career Center system’s ability to serve customers with disabilities (e.g., through staff training, disseminating resource information, coordinating with other One-Stop partners, linking to community-based partners, outreach to employers, providing accessibility through assistive technology, accommodations, etc.); and customers with a disability -- a job. In addition, the interview will focus on promising practices that can be replicated throughout the One-Stop Career Center system.
