The Maine Employment Curriculum (MEC) Implementation Project is designed to build the capacity of community rehabilitation providers to enhance and promote meaningful career options for individuals with disabilities in Maine by ensuring that job coaches and employment specialists have knowledge and skills in best practice employment supports.
(Laconia, NH) At our Company’s annual management meeting Sarah Ames of the Portland-Brunswick, Maine team was honored as the top placement person for 2012. With 57 placements, Sarah received the first annual Roger LaChapelle Placement Award.
The Award is named after Roger LaChapelle, who achieved over 300 placements during his brief career with Work Opportunities Unlimited before his retirement in 2011. Sarah told the group that the Award was especially significant for her because Roger was her middle school assistant principal (Don’t worry, Sarah told us she never had to meet with him for disciplinary issues!)
