Colville disABILITIES Resource Fair

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.

Goodbye, PY17. Hello, PY18.

Upcoming events and Job fairs

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!"

Check back soon for updates on upcoming events!

July is already here! Which means we're starting a new program year. PY17 was full of successes and new experiences: 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? 54! 

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