Overview: Tucson Business leader, Jim Click, had a unique idea. His vision was to gather the often-overlooked resources of the city’s disabled workers into a central location, then make their wealth of skills and initiative readily available to the business community.
He shared his dream with D. Ruth Mondschein, a pioneer in employment, training, and arts for people with disabilities, and together they began the process of unifying the efforts of Tucson’s employers and rehabilitation.
Fast forward to today and Linkages has been around for nearly 20 years and most of our work in ‘linking’ employers to great talent is done through our job board. We have also expanded our mission to include ‘linking’ veterans, specifically Wounded Warriors to employers.
