Thank you Amador and Calaveras County Employers for Supporting The Arc

Posted by: Lea_Marie_C_Paar on 07/24/2014 12:11 PM
Amador and Calaveras County, Ca...The Arc of Amador and Calaveras is a non-profit, grass roots organization who works with intellectually and developmentally disabled adults. One of the areas we support our consumers in is supported employment. Currently we have 40 individuals working in the community at a variety of businesses throughout Amador and Calaveras Counties. They are hired through the business and receive minimum wage or above. Some of the perks of hiring someone through The Arc is that they are assigned a Job Coach, who helps them learn their job, at no cost to the employer. The job coach is always available throughout their employment term. We also pride ourselves on helping our folks develop a natural support system by building friendships with supervisors, co-workers and peers with similar jobs and needs. Of course the biggest reward is seeing how proud our folks are of their jobs; because of course where they work is the best place on earth. The Arc’s Supported Employment program could not be as successful if it was not for the businesses listed below. Without their willingness to hire, many people we support, may have never found the satisfaction and independence that comes from employment....

An opportunity to work: Community Support, How Local Businesses Support The Arc’s Work Crews

Posted by: Lea_Marie_C_Paar on 07/22/2014 01:46 PM
Amador County, Ca....Work crews at the Arc are paid group work opportunities in the community. All workers earn minimum wage and gain the skills needed to prepare them for individual job placements within the community. Crew members are held to a high standard. They must arrive to work on time, come dressed in crew attire, follow directions and follow safety rules and regulation set forth by each company we work for. In the past work crews use to use two vans and two trailers for recycling crews during the summer months. This year we purchased a 2004 Dodge Ram truck, eliminating the use of two vans down to one truck. This has been great for day programs as now they have the use of all their vans for classes and outings. Not only did the purchase of the truck increase the opportunity for campus outings in both Amador and Calaveras, but it saves the Arc money on a weekly basis. “We’re very proud of the new work crew truck,” said Director of Supported Employment Ileshia Knigge. “It bring cost saving strategy, keeps our day program vans clean, and consumers are very proud of it, it was a great decision and I’m happy our Executive Director and Board of Directors supported the purchase.”...
