We all want a great job in a great community and plenty of friends to share the experience. For people with disabilities, these goals can be challenging. For more than 55 years, the dedicated and committed care providers at Via have worked to help children and young adults find jobs and provided opportunities so people with disabilities may lead active and enjoyable lives in their own community.
