The American Dream Employment Network (ADEN) is a solution-oriented administrative Employment Network (EN) model. We provide technical assistance and training to employment service providers, such as American Job Centers, Employers, Community Rehabilitation Providers and other interested Community Partners, from across the country, providing high quality services to Social Security disability beneficiaries through Social Security Administration’s (SSA) Ticket to Work program.
At ADEN, we are committed to advancing the employment goals of Americans with Disabilities. We do this through serving three populations:
Employment Service Providers: Agencies that provide employment services to job seekers with disabilities are invited to become ADEN Members. Members represent state and local Workforce Investment Boards, community rehabilitation providers and other qualified and interested community partners across the country.
Job Seekers: If you receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits and are between the ages of 18 through 64, and you’re ready to return to work, we are here to support you. Whether you are entering the workforce for the first time, returning to work or currently working, ADEN can support you in your efforts.
Employers: ADEN is committed to working closely with employers, including federal contractros, that are interested in diversifying their workforce, as well as federal contractors hiring individuals with disabilities.
