Area company gives job opportunities to disabled

first_img“I think it’s easy to underestimate people with disabilities,” she said. “But once you have the chance to see them \, it will change your views 110 percent.” About a mile away, clients at Lincoln’s flagship training center in South El Monte do everything from shrink wrapping to box assembly to landscaping. The center, located in the middle of a row of muffler shops, worn-down warehouses and other industrial businesses, is neatly kept. “We help them with job skills and social skills,” Garza said, adding that the center is made of up of a diverse population. The clients, some of whom have physical disabilities in addition to developmental disabilities, get to pick their jobs based on their skills, said Caron Nunez, Lincoln Center’s president. “What I love about the history of the center is the clients now have more choices for the type of services they provide,” she said. “Years ago, their choice was to work at the training center – and that’s it. Now, they can go out and work at a site or with a group of individuals.” Lincoln has come a long way since it first started in 1964 with a small group of parents who wanted to offer their challenged children a chance to enter the work force. Back then, clients mostly rolled newspapers for use as packaging. Now, the center contracts with more than 50 companies throughout California – and with one job site in Las Vegas – for all sorts of warehouse jobs, custodial and janitorial duties. “I like to have a job,” said client Christine Young, 35, of Monrovia. “I like to make big money.” tania.chatila@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2703160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

They are happy to offer a skill and even happier to have jobs. “At Lincoln, we feel everybody deserves a chance at a good life,” said RoseMary Garza, vice president of rehabilitation programs at the center, which provides job-skill training and employment opportunities to more than 400 people with developmental disabilities. “Work is an essential part of having a good life, feeling that you can contribute,” she added. At the Signet company in El Monte, a group of about five Lincoln clients help assemble kits and put together manuals. Their contributions helped phase out a costly contract with a printing company, said Tricia Ochoa, production manager at Signet, which makes instruments for piping systems. SOUTH EL MONTE – Some might say Andrew Gaytan has a tedious job. In a one- to two-step process, Gaytan fastens a black rubber grommet to a yellow plastic disc in assembly line fashion at George Fischer Signet Inc. Above his workstation, two small awards remind him of jobs well done. One reads: “Good Work.” The other affords him the title of “Hardest Worker.” last_img read more
