Commissioners Promote Disability Awareness

4 Oct , 2016  

The Richland County Commissioners have proclaimed October as Disability Employment Awareness Month. The purpose of the month is to educate the public about disability employment issues and celebrate the many and varied contributions of America’s workers with disabilities. This year’s theme is “#InclusionWorks.”

In 2015, only 17.5 percent of people with disabilities were employed, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. “Some of our nation’s most successful companies make inclusion a core value; they profit by having a wider variety of tools to confront challenges,” points out Amanda South, Richland Newhope’s Director of Adult Services. “Richland Newhope and Richland Newhope Industries, Inc. work with local school districts and businesses to support transitioning youth and adults to be prepared and successful in their job.” More…
