Working with the POW&R program has been an opportunity for the department staff to understand, learn more and have an appreciation of individuals with autism. In the long run this helps the community promote awareness of autism while it assists these young adults in their transition from high school into the working world. This transition is not easy for any young adult, let alone one with a set of unique needs so awareness is important for all involved. The support staff at POW&R has been here day, night and weekends to acclimate these young men to our environment. I feel it has been a rewarding experience to date and we look to continue our relationship with POW&R in the future
I am pleased to be part of this successful program! The training and guidance provided by the staff at POW&R is first-rate. These facilitators work hands-on with the clients of the program to learn and execute tasks. Not only do the program clients and facilitators strive meet a high quality standard, but also to reach daily and weekly goals. It has been a source of much pride to watch my employees from the POW&R program grow into their positions at Miller’s Beverage!
