The SourceAmerica Pathways to Careers (Pathways) initiative relies upon state-of-the-art employment strategies to enable people with significant disabilities to have an informed choice of competitive, integrated, full-wage employment options that match their individual skills, interests, and abilities. In this report, we document the activities of the Utah Pathways project and the experiences of project participants from the time Pathways first began accepting applications in May 2012, through October 2015. During that time the project enrolled 67 participants. This is the first of two primary reports that will describe the findings of the Pathways evaluation. The evaluation is based on information collected from the program management information system, participant applications and follow-up surveys conducted 6, 12, and 24 months after intake, and interviews with staff and employers participating in Pathways.
