As NYSID continues its 40th anniversary celebration, we wish to acknowledge our member agencies and corporate partners for creating meaningful employment for New Yorkers with disabilities throughout our 40-year history.

We couldn’t have done it without YOU!

Over the next several months, NYSID will highlight these organizations, county by county, to demonstrate their human service support and economic impact within communities across New York State.

We begin with Albany County, where 647 New Yorkers with disabilities worked 402,615 employment hours on Preferred Source contracts in 2014!

Thanks to the following member agencies and corporate partners for their job creation efforts: Action Window Cleaning, Inc.; Camelot Consulting, Inc.; Center for Disability Services; E-Biz Docs; Focused Technologies; Image Data, Inc.; Immediate Mailing Services, Inc.; Janitronics, Inc.; Northeast Career Planning/The Norton Center, Inc.; Plaza Linen Service; Rayben Enterprises, Inc.; Rehabilitation Support Services; Schenectady County Chapter NYSARC, Inc.; Second Chance Opportunities; and The Altamont Program, Inc.

Neil Vatsyayan, from the Center for Disability Services, is one of 59 Joslin Outstanding Performers nominated by NYSID member agencies and corporate partners in 2014. Through perseverance, Neil has progressed from inserting mail to Commercial Services, the Center’s for-profit mailing business. He works as a mailing processing clerk I, primarily on NYSID Preferred Source contracts.

Congratulations to Neil, and thanks to our member agencies and corporate partners in Albany County for helping us celebrate “40 Years of Looking Forward”.

“I want to congratulate NYSID for four decades of service in New York State,” said Albany County Executive Daniel P. McCoy, a NYSID Veterans’ Summit participant. “Over the years, NYSID has had a positive impact in the community. I am especially pleased that the organization works closely with veterans in Albany County to help them transition back into society. This has proven to be a valuable service to veterans and their families.”

Keep an eye out for your member agency or corporate partner in the weeks and months ahead, as we highlight NYSID Preferred Source job creation –– county by county –– across New York State!
