St. Ann’s Community has been recognized by the New York State Education Department of Adult Career and Continuing Education Services-Vocational Rehabilitation (ACCES-VR) for a demonstrated commitment in assisting individuals with disabilities to achieve and maintain employment.
The recognition was part of ACCES-VR’s observation of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, which is observed every October. Both Irondequoit and Webster campuses of St. Ann’s Community were recognized by ACCES-VR for their efforts.
St. Ann’s Community utilizes resources from ACCES-VR such as job coaching services in order to help prospective employees prepare for job interviews and connect them with the resources they need to be successful.
“It’s important to us that our workforce represents the diversity of the Rochester community that we serve,” said Michelle Dwyer, human resources coordinator at St. Ann’s Community. “We’ve always been committed to hiring individuals from all different types of backgrounds, and we’re really proud to have a diverse workforce of over 1200 employees where everyone is differently talented.”
