National Disability Employment Awareness Month Los Angeles Feature
National Disability Awareness Month is a signficant month for us here at PathPoint.
This is a unique opportunity to highlight the local businesses, corporations and partners who truly make independent living a success for our individuals and communities. These partnerships have encouraged growth, job opportunities and life skills for each participant involved.
We are truly thankful for these relationships and would like to give you a glimpse of how local employers have changed both our participant’s lives as well as our communities for the better.
K-Mart and PathPoint have developed a truly amazing community partnership in Long Beach, CA. This particular store location alone has employed as many as (6) individuals from PathPoint. Robyn, Softlines Merchandiser, has successfully transitioned from Community Access Services to Individual Supported Employment. July 2015 marked her 1 year of employment with K-Mart. Robyn is so proud to describe her journey and encourages her peers in the day program to focus on their goals to become gainfully employed.
