Good News Friday!

Earlier this week, I was honored to be invited to speak to the staff of Imagine!’s C.O.R.E./Labor Source department as part of Labor Source’s 25th anniversary celebration, a milestone officially reached in October.

For those who don’t know, Labor Source is the vocational component of C.O.R.E./Labor Source.

What has allowed this pioneering project to succeed for 25 years has been a group of Imagine! employees who thrive on creativity, possess an unquenchable work ethic, and are driven by a passion to improve the lives of people who have a developmental disability. The other key element in this equation is the effort put forth by consumer after consumer. There are two hard working consumers in the picture to the right, Letosha Patton and Melinda Stewart. Both Letosha and Melinda work at The Hungry Toad in Boulder, a business that has been using Labor Source crews for an incredible 18 years!

My years working with the Labor Source team were some of the most important years of my life. Congratulations to everyone ever involved with this very vital service.
