Business Luncheon September 30

We’re hosting a Business Luncheon from noon to 1:00 at Bruce Township on Wednesday, September 30.  Beth Keeton, consultant for our Customized Employment project will speak on the hiring of people with disabilities. We’ll have subs from Grant Street for lunch.  There is no charge to attend.  Beth is a knowledgable and interesting presenter, and does consultation work across the county.

Please give a little thought to this question on your drive or walk to the training:  what would you do for  your business if you had $10,000?

A Great Week to Celebrate

It’s National Direct Support Professional Recognition this week.  This copy of the US Senate Resolution says it all.  The relationships built between our employees who provide direct services and the people we serve is the whole reason SU is here.  We are incredibly lucky that so many good people are dedicated to our mission.  It is high time that direct support services be funded at a level commensurate with this awesome responsibility.

SU Budget Update

DHS notified us that our grants are restored through December.  This is great news, though whether that funding will continue is in question.  We have made a budget that will keep SU financially stable without any further cuts/adjustments through the end of June.  We won’t be able to plan too much for after June until we get a better idea of the state’s financial picture.

Thank you to everyone for your support as we all work our way through these economic challenges.
