What is Career$mart Adult?
Career$mart is an employment program of Able-Disabled Advocacy (A-DA) serving low-income individuals living with disabilities, who strive to earn enough to be self-supporting. San Diego has a high cost of living and it takes more than a minimum wage job to afford to live here. Boost your chance for career and life success and join our Career$mart support group. Our goal for all Career$mart participants is employment or career advancement. Fast track your career with the Career$mart Express. Note: A-DA has a Career$mart program for youth too!
Program Eligibility Requirements
The program is designed to assist disabled individuals who have income above the poverty level but who need more income to support themselves. Applicants need to have a job skill and be ready to look for a job. We can accept individuals who have a job but make less than a livable wage and we are looking to enroll Social Security disability recipients who are striving to get off public benefits.
