Quadco is work­ing with an increas­ing num­ber of indi­vid­u­als with dis­abil­i­ties who want to work in the com­mu­nity and is help­ing more of them find jobs.

At a meet­ing held Tues­day, Quadco’s Exec­u­tive Direc­tor told board mem­bers that there is a lot of empha­sis on com­mu­nity employ­ment.

He pointed to the Governor’s Employ­ment First Ini­tia­tive, where peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties, espe­cially young peo­ple reach­ing grad­u­a­tion, explore employ­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties before pur­su­ing other pro­grams.

Quadco has become, he said, more of a pre­ferred provider, and because of that, has seen an increase in peo­ple want­ing their ser­vice.

Last month, five peo­ple were employed through their ser­vices. Three were in restau­rants, one at a church and the fifth as a farm hand. Also, recently another per­son went to work for a local restau­rant and one joined a clean­ing company.
