Work at Home Employment for Disabled

In reading this story, I can tell you that even though I now work at home I too feel much more a part of society as I am making a contribution again. I have two things to thank for that, one being the Ticket to Work program http://www.ssa.gov/work/aboutticket offered through Social Security and the other is J.Lodge http://www.jlodge.com which gave me the opportunity to work and has many opportunities available for others who may be interested. If you are on SSDI and are a Ticket holder please visit the site and check out the Employment opportunities.
