Innovating together, thanks to you
Janine is shining in her new job at Arby's, where she landed an internship as part of our Together Works Better community employment initiative. Janine is proud of her new independence. "I decided myself to try it," she said. "I like the customers and my co-workers are nice." To date, we have placed 13 individuals in 14 internships through Together Works Better. In addition, 10 individuals, including Janine, have taken advantage of Blue & White taxi for supplemental transportation to and from work.
The project is made possible through generous support from Ed and Val Spencer, The Saint Paul Foundation, F.R. Bigelow Foundation, Opus Foundation, and the Minnesota Department of Human Services Disability Services Division.
