Integrity Works

Integrity, Inc. is a non-profit organization that serves individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Since 1989, we have been helping individuals with disabilities achieve the skills and confidence they need to live as independently as possible. Our Supported Employment program Integrity Works is one of the ways we help individuals to achieve this independence.

Integrity Works is based on the Employment First policy, where all individuals with disabilities find meaning, find work, and become more independent, integrated, and productive members of society. We strive to place individuals in competitive employment rather than sheltered workshop environments. We work to ensure that our participants have training and job options that match their interest and abilities. From vocational assessment and job development to on-the-job training and retraining, our Supported Employment program encompasses all aspects of follow-along support.


    • Discovery – The fundamental purpose of Discovery is to learn about your unique skills and talents, and what you want to pursue. Through our in-depth, person-centered approach, we spend one-on-one time with you in the community to identify your strengths and abilities, along with your likes and dislikes. This can be done by trying various job activities, observing you at home doing household tasks, and engaging in business tours.

    • Employment Path (Pre-Vocational) – This service provides learning opportunities, including soft skills, work-based experience, internships, and volunteer opportunities, where you can develop work-related strengths and skills contributing to employability in integrated community settings.

    • Job Development – When you enter the Job Development phase, we begin the search for a position that’s based on the information we have gathered. Each job search is as unique as your own dreams and goals. Using our network of partnerships, we work to find the best job match for you. As with any job placement, this can take time.

  • Job Coaching – Our professional Job Coaching staff helps you with initial detailed on-the-job training. We continue with ongoing support throughout your employment, to help your job placement be successful for both you and your employer.
Integrity, Inc’s services are designed to fulfill labor needs for employers, while providing meaningful employment for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Central Arkansas.
