It was an honor and privilege to attend this lunch reception at The ARC. They recently received a grant from local bank institutions like ENT Federal Credit Union.
The staff took time to explain The ARC outreach and programs to everyone and how the improvements will increase the quality of services they provide to everyone. With me were Commissioner-elect Longinos Gonzales, Commissioner Peggy LIttleton, Anthony Perez with CRES, and organizations like JobCorps.
Employment of disabled people is among the worst in the state. Our resources are well invested in helping people with disabilities achieve their best and be part of our community. The training programs are for employers to know how to best hire people with disabilities, what technologies are available to make them the best employee that they can be, and to coach both, employees and employers when there is a difficulty or challenge in the work situation.
