Direct Employment


Client coachWe directly employ nearly 200 people who have barriers to employment each year. We operate a large, modern manufacturing center just for this purpose. We create jobs through the subcontracts we have with our business partners and through our participation in the AbilityOne Program. (See www.abilityone.org for more information about AbilityOne.). For over 30 years, we have manufactured paper punches for the federal government through this federal initiative, which helps people who have significant disabilities find employment. We are part of a national network of over 600 nonprofit agencies that sell products and services to the U.S. Government. Direct employment services include vocational counseling, case management, on-the-job training, and other services as needed.  Creating greater opportunities for inclusion and integrated (disabled/nondisabled), competitive employment is a program priority.
