Many people with disabilities are willing and able to work. Employers who hire those with disabilities often find themselves with productive, long term employees. In this time of employee shortages, the opportunity has never been greater for those who are eager to use their job skills to contribute in a business environment. 

What They Say

What Our Business Partners Say

Getting started with CORE was a smooth process; each representative we met with was very supportive and knowledgeable. We have been given the opportunity to work with a great Employment Specialist whose ambition to train and support the participant is actually contagious. It’s been a pleasure working with both of them. I am definitely appreciative that Bolt Custom Trucks is a part of CORE’s Vocational Training Program.
