From our Director, Ty Lingo:

"I am so proud to announce that Ability Employment Services has just been notified that we have been awarded a three-year accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). Three years is the maximum amount for the accreditation and is (literally) the Gold Standard within our industry. This shows that our organization operates within a best practice space in every aspect of our business and service delivery. We are very honored and humbled and will continue to Aspire to Excellence in all facets of our business. Thank you so much to all our amazing staff during this two-year journey. We hope to continue to earn the trust of our fund sources and clients as we strive towards exceptional service delivery. Our mission is to provide comprehensive and personalized support for individuals seeking or sustaining employment, and building community employer relationships is how we do it. If you would like to learn how to enrich your workplace culture and save some money on your next hire or if you know of someone with a qualifying disability in Spokane, Stevens or Pend Oreille counties give us a call!"

What a year PY17 was! We saw more growth, new hires, recognition and attended more community events than in PY16.

One of the new records we set for ourselves is the total number of successful job placements we had in the past year. In PY16, we had 26 jobs for our clients... Halfway through PY17, we exceeded that by 2! 

The total count at the end of the year? 55! 

We are off to a running start... 24 jobs since July 1st!

We are proud to have such hard-working clients and consultants, and are excited to continue breaking records in the years to come.

Congratulations to Senior Employment Consultant Cathy Eylar for defending her title as Ability Champion! Not only is Cathy the reigning two-year champion, she also won our new award. We call it the “Top Job Snob” for having the highest number of successful job placements in PY17. Cathy had 13 successful job placements for her clients, which proves that her dedication and hard work on their behalf truly pays off.

CARF accreditation

2017 Employer of the year: Shadle center mcdonald's

Program Year 2017 Champion

One Rock Point, Suite 124

Spokane, WA 9

Goodbye PY17, Hello PY18.

In March we presented the Shadle Center McDonald’s with our 2017 Employer of the Year award. We chose this McDonald’s for many reasons; their willingness to accommodate our clients, the way our clients are treated, the friendly and positive environment, and the way everyone there enjoys what they do.
Employment Consultant Mike Glenn commented that our client Tony Newman’s coworkers go out of their way to show that what he does is appreciated and to thank him for all his hard work.

Hannah Gay and Brea Burnett split time there with Joe Gutman, they said the McDonald’s team is accommodating for coaching that meets our clients’ needs. Joe’s coworkers always treat him with care and respect; and are always looking for ways to help him improve at his job.

Our thanks go out to General Manager Bailey, Operations Manager Alice, Owner/Operator Matt and all the assistant managers and employees at the Shadle Center McDonald’s for always making us and our clients feel welcome. We are honored to have the opportunity to work with you.
