October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month.  Help us raise awareness about employment issues for people with disabilities and celebrate the many contributions of America's workers with disabilities!    Judy Merriwether and Harry Emery were awarded a "Certificate of Achievement" for successfully completing the 10-week James L. Maher Center Job Club as part of the Maher Pre-Employment Training Program.  Judy and Harry were applauded by their Maher Center peers and staff.  They also received a gift bag of employment-related items.  Mark Benevides is pictured working on the farm with Ponies as Partners.
