About Linking Employment, Abilities and Potential (LEAP)

Linking Employment, Abilities and Potential (LEAP) is an agent of positive change, working to advance participation and equality in society for people with disabilities in Northeast Ohio. Headquartered in Cleveland, LEAP reaches six counties in Northeast Ohio.

LEAP provides information, education, training, employment and independent living services to people with disabilities so that they can live in their own homes, participate in community life, and find and maintain stable employment.

In addition, LEAP is accredited by CARF International, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, which is the major international accrediting agency for health and human service providers.


Job Coach

June 2018 - August 2018 Cleveland, OH
“The job itself was great. My boss was always there to answer questions and give me feedback on my current job performance. The training was exceptional and I really felt ready to begin working when I finished the two week training period. There was a lot of critical thinking on the job site and I had to think outside the box to help solve issues I was having. Also the work was diverse, some weeks I was coaching, other days I would be teaching a life lessons course, and sometimes I would just be in the office doing projects my boss needed me to get done. ”
