Ability Works

The annual Ability Works Awards honor one outstanding candidate from each of the agency’s six districts, coinciding each October with National Disability Employment Awareness Month.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, DRS was unable to hold its annual Ability Works Recognition Ceremony in 2020. Therefore, DRS implemented a nontraditional awards program, the Unsung Heroes of 2020, to recognize DRS consumers who served in "frontline" employment situations during the pandemic.
