Wisconsin’s direct care workforce crisis is leaving people with disabilities and the elderly without needed care. People across the state can’t find personal care workers, job coaches, respite workers or therapy aides.  To end the crisis, Survival Coalition, the Wisconsin Personal Services Association and the Workforce Alliance need your help.  We want to tell lawmakers how the workforce crisis is impacting real people.

Please use the link below to answer a simple survey about how the workforce crisis is impacting you:

Survey for People with Physical Disabilities


By Employment Network, 2016-03-10

The Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) is conducting a study of adults with physical disabilities.  We want to know about your barriers to employment as well as resources that you need to support your work / career goals.  In addition, we are interested in knowing how you find information on employment services and supports. The target groups for the study are:

•    Adults with cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, or other physical disabilities; and
•    Young adults ages 18 to 65 with any type of physical disability.
•    You may be employed or unemployed.

To be eligible to participate, you must be a U.S. citizen and be able to provide legal consent.

Participants will complete an online survey requiring approximately 20 minutes. One hundred participants will be randomly selected to receive a $25 gift card.  However, there is no guarantee that everyone who completes the survey will be selected to receive the gift card. 

If you are interested in participating, the VCU-RRTC needs your consent.  You may do this by following the link below to read more about the study, review the survey questions, and give your consent.
