Dear Family & Friends,
We hope that you and your family are healthy, staying safe, and enjoying holiday preparations. Now more than ever, we all hold dear the value of employment. The past several months have been very difficult for all of us in many ways, but we’re so thankful for our community, people like you, who have rallied and cheered on our program participants through the COVID-19 pandemic and the challenges of 2020. Employment Horizons serves nearly 500 people each year with disabilities. Our mission and passion are to help each person served reach the goal of obtaining the job of their choice.
Like so many people all over the country, the people with disabilities we serve have experienced job losses, furloughs, frustrations with obtaining unemployment benefits, and the uncertainty of finding new jobs through the pandemic. In addition, those who work in Employment Horizons’ Fulfillment Division (our agency-based program) were out of work for seven months. With the help of our families and several community advocates, their voices were heard! We obtained authorization to re-open this program at the beginning of October.
Because we are #EHstrong, our team (people served, families, business partners, board of trustees, donors, and our amazingly dedicated staff) rallied together, conquering each challenge that came our way. Just look at the photos below. The people we work with are some of the most dependable workers and it is not only our mission, but our joy, to serve them.
We still have a way to go, but our hopes are high because of the support of people like you! During this Holiday Campaign of “Thanks”, would you donate to support and enhance our services that help hundreds of people with disabilities? Over .96 cents of every dollar donated to Employment Horizons goes directly towards these programs; directly to services for those who need our help.
