Rep. Bobby Scott toured our facility and talked to associates and managers about the importance of employment for persons with disabilities and the barriers they face. Rep. Scott has been a supportive congressman of our program for many years.
October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month, a time when we celebrate the powerful impact persons with disabilities make in our community and around the world. It’s hard to believe this reliable, effective workforce has an unemployment rate of approximately 70%. We have known for 62 years the power of this often misunderstood workforce. We invite you to come tour our facilities throughout the month of October. Please contact Carrie Craddock at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to come meet some of our excellent employees!
