On July 26, we celebrate the 26th anniversary of a very important legislation for individuals with disabilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination based on disabilities and ensures that those with disabilities have equal opportunity to employment, government and state programs and public services.
Last week, Goodwill NYNJ staff testified in front of the New York City Council to support the bill introduced by Council member Richie Torres to expand Jobs-Plus programs to all housing developments operated by the New York City Housing Authority.
Currently, Goodwill NYNJ operates a Jobs-Plus at The Bronx to offer job training and employment support for residents of the Clason Point, Sack Wern and Monroe NYC NYCHA developments.
The Monroe Community Center is located at 1776 Story Avenue, Bronx, NY 10473.
