Many people with disabilities struggle to find meaningful employment. Through Vecova, Paul connected with an employer who appreciates his abilities and supports his expanding skills base and his desire to contribute.
Initially hired to sweep floors, Paul now runs a drill press and sweeps when the press is slow. He also instituted a new safety measure for his company. Paul is proud of his achievements, his attention to detail and of how little support he requires.
“I really love my job…I feel like I’m doing something valuable and I’m independent and I don’t need too much help.” – Paul, Vecova client
