Labor Source 30 for 30 - Lafayette Public Library

Labor Source, the supported employment division of Imagine!’s CORE/Labor Source department, is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year.

To honor this important milestone, each week I am publicly thanking and recognizing Labor Source’s many local business partners.

Supported employment offers people who have a disability the opportunity to develop vital job skills and become active participants in their communities. The benefits extend far beyond helping individuals served by Imagine!, however. Businesses using our services are able to reduce recruitment and training expenses as they benefit from a diversified employee pool. Partnering with CORE/Labor Source is a “win-win” situation that is beneficial all around.

We are very grateful to our business partners who have demonstrated their commitment to Imagine!’s mission by employing CORE/Labor Source participants.

Today’s Labor Source 30 for 30 partner highlight: Lafayette Public Library.

At the Lafayette Public Library, you may use your card to checkout and renew materials, download eBooks, search our online databases, and use library computers. You may also enjoy a variety of programs for children, teens, and adults that connect our community to reading and learning. Community members can present library co-sponsored programs.

Thank you, Lafayette Public Library, for providing employment opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
