NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) -

A workshop held Wednesday connected adults with disabilities to local and statewide resources. ServiceSource is a program centered on financial stability and independence, and helping adults find jobs in the area.

Session topics included Social Security Administration, money management, and healthcare options. Pablo Puentes is a program director with ServiceSource, and said no matter the type of disability, the service is a huge help by connecting them to all the right people.

"When you're trying to get back to work you're worried about your body, about how you're feeling, trying to make your employer happy, but nobody's coming to tell you, hey your benefits could be affected," Puentes said. 

ServiceSource also helps place adults in our state in full or part time jobs.
