GLADWIN – This October, the Arnold Center, whose on-going mission is to empower individuals with disabilities and other barriers to independence through enhanced vocational, social and life skill training and services that lead to greater self-sufficiency, is proud to join the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy and many other organizations in celebrating the 75th observance of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM).

National Disability Employment Awareness Month was declared in 1988 by the United States Congress for the month of October to raise awareness of the employment and contributions of individuals with all types of disabilities. This October of 2020, America pays tribute and observes National Disability Employment Awareness Month by expressing profound admiration to the accomplishments of the men and women with disabilities whose work helps keep the nation’s economy strong and by reaffirming their commitment to ensure equal opportunity for all citizens.

“This October is a great time to reflect on the myriad of employment opportunities that our country and region has provided for people with disabilities and to also recognize there is always more to be done on employment opportunities for those in the disability community,” said Jennifer Grace, Executive Director of the Arnold Center.

The Arnold Center is a community rehabilitation organization with locations in Midland and Gladwin, that provides services to individuals with barriers to employment. These programs are designed to strengthen the community through advancing the skills of those that are most vulnerable. Our service programs increase self-sufficiency skills that strengthen independence, vocational abilities, soft skills, and community engagement.
