We hope you had a happy 4th of July

This year, July 4th has taken on even more meaning. We haven’t achieved real freedom until everyone has truly equal opportunity. That’s why we want to thank our employer partners for their commitment to an inclusive workforce. Here’s a virtual shout out to these amazing employers!

Please consider making a donation to help ensure that the promise of “employment for all” is a reality.

Job Path is standing strong. Please stand with us.

Job Path’s strength has always been our thoughtful and dedicated staff, but these past weeks, I’ve been more in awe than ever of the creative people I work with:

 The “dream team” in our Supported Living program who volunteered to move in to care for people who are ill or quarantined

 The Employment staff who are the lifeline for people who are struggling to cope with layoffs and furloughs

 The creative members of our Community Supports team who offer a busy schedule of virtual classes ranging from poetry to American Sign Language and dance (which is so popular we had to add a second class) so that people remain connected and engaged

We recently heard from a parent about our staff:

“Job Path has given me peace of mind when I can’t be with my son. His support staff are a godsend.” 

- Pier LeGendre

Our amazing staff have enabled us to stand strong. But right now we need your help to manage the increased costs we’ve incurred during this time: for overtime costs, protective equipment for staff and Uber rides so that staff can travel to work safely. Can you make a gift to support this work?
