In an effort to be helpful to organizations who support individuals with intellectual disabilities throughout the Province, Abilities has created a system to collect and match organizations who either have excess staff (due to day programs closing, etc.) with those that are in need of staff.
Abilities Manitoba staff will receive all submissions and work to match offers of staff with requests. Where that is not possible, the information will be posted on our website until either the offer or demand is resolved.
The tool is designed to help connect those that are available with organizations that need help during this crisis period only. All arrangements, screening, and scheduling are between the organization offering to work and the organizations or people wishing to employ them. You may consider creating something like this sample Memo of Understanding between the lending and receiving organizations. While this sample has been reviewed by legal counsel, it is offered only as a sample and organizations are responsible for their own due diligence in establishing agreements.
The system is easy. Simply click on the link that best suits your situation and fill in the form. These results go to Abilities Manitoba for matching. Anything that cannot be resolved immediately is then listed on the ‘Staff Deployment Service’ page until it has. Please allow 24-48 hours for matching and/or posting on the website but rest assured we will be checking results more daily.
Note: This service is open to organizations funded or served by Community Living disAbility Services.
