Helping reduce unemployment for people with disabilities

An organization that helps people with developmental and intellectual disabilities says progress is being made in helping reduced the local unemployment rate for the types of people they are trying to help.

That according to Andrew Sewnauth, a vice president with CDS Monarch. He says recent statistics from the federal government show that the jobless rate for people with disabilities dropped about two percent, to just over 10 percent in July. Sewnauth says his organization has helped find jobs for 35 people with those types of disabilities.
