Merck Animal Health Helps KSI's Supported Employment Program
8/1/2016 - Kent-Sussex Industries, Inc. (KSI) recently received a grant from Merck Animal Health which will help fund KSI’s expanding Supported Employment Program.
Merck Animal Health is a company that has Embraced Abilities with KSI since 1989. When KSI recently applied for funding for the Supported Employment Program, Merck Animal Health was able to help. Supported Employment is a program that places program participants in independent jobs in a community setting. KSI’s Supported Employment specialists work closely with local businesses to match their job needs with individuals who are looking for employment. The continual follow along they provide helps to ensure success for the new employee as well as satisfaction from the employer. Merck Animal Health employees have seen firsthand the dedication and quality job performance as they have utilized a KSI work crew for decades.
KSI is a not for profit agency providing vocational training, employment, supported employment, community integration, transportation, and day habilitation services. KSI is committed to making all reasonable accommodations in order to ensure that its programs and services are as accessible as possible to as many people as possible.
