As the pandemic unfolds all around us, so too does the Spring! We hope that you are all able to find moments to enjoy the sight of flowers blooming and sun in the sky. It has been a number of weeks like none other. We are grateful that we have remained united in our resolve to push through the weeks ahead. It has not been easy for our staff or our families, but we are encouraged every day by the strength people are showing.

We would like to recognize Abigail Eaves, Director of Programs, for leading this grant proposal, and for the employment project we call The COMET (Community Opportunities for Meaningful Employment and Training).
The COMET will provide employment opportunities for people with disabilities in the Merrimack Valley and Seacoast Communities. The goal is to create an organic employment opportunity based on real-life work settings. This grant will help us in starting our new Supported Employment Contract funded by the Department of Developmental Services (DDS). Participants will develop work ethic, self-leadership skills, understanding of group dynamics, skills, and explore employment opportunities.
