July: Disability Pride Month

At MRCI WorkSource we celebrate each person’s ABILITIES every month of the year.  But, July is a month recognized as a time to honor each person’s uniqueness, and to challenge stigmas surrounding the word “disability.”  According the U.S. Census Bureau, 19 percent of the population has a disability, making them a part of the largest and most diverse minority representing all abilities, ages, races, and socio-economic backgrounds. Yet this population continues to face barriers in community activities, employment, and quality of life.

MRCI Partners with hundreds of Businesses

 

MRCI WorkSource has partnered with hundreds of businesses throughout Minnesota,

She and her husband, co-owner Phil Vorwerk,  take great pride in designing beautiful upholstered seats for golf carts and boats. Products you have to see to appreciate. Turns out their ability to look beyond the surface, though, has been one of their most rewarding business and personal ventures.

 

“When Tom Rivers walked in here and asked if we had interest in hiring a blind individual, I just didn’t really see how it could work in our business. I just didn’t see how the young man he mentioned could help us with sewing and upholstery without having visual feedback,” says Phil.
