The Springfield-based human service non-profit agency Viability held a re-branding event Friday. Mayor Domenic Sarno showed his support for Viability’s goal of providing a variety of services for people with disabilities needing jobs and job training.
When he started to talk, I was immediately struck by his calm and soothing voice. Everyone listened. He said, “My Name is Frederick Oballa,” and then someone interrupted him saying, “tell them that you send all your money to your community in Kenya to help build wells for water and to help children to go to school!” he broke into a big smile. I needed to know more!
Viability is excited to announce that we have recently received a 3 year renewable contract to provide employment services to individuals referred from the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS).
By recruiting, hiring, and retaining those with disabilities, businesses can give themselves a competitive edge and demonstrate their commitment to inclusion.
Colleen Holmes is the President and CEO of Viability, Inc. and has served on the Baystate Health Board since 2017, including her membership on the Quality Committee, Human Resources Committee and Governance Committee. Let’s learn more about her!
