Last week, Vadis had the pleasure of hosting a visit from our friends from Boeing’s Employee Community Fund and a guest from United Way.

The Boeing Employee Community Fund has played a significant role in Vadis’ success, particularly in our Group Supported Employee program or as we call it, GSE. GSE is a training program where individuals with disabilities learn employment skills such as team work, communication skills, goal setting and promptness while working on landscaping crews out in the community. These skills prepare them for employment in the community. The Boeing Employee Community Fund has been tremendously generous in providing for funding for vehicles to transport crews and their tools to and from community job sites.

For the last couple years, BoeinBoeing 2g has sent teams from the community fund out to see Vadis, meet the crews and see what their funding has accomplished.

Our crew members have a wonderful time explaining the work they do to our visitors!

We think our Boeing visitors have a great time meeting the crew members and learning of their successes! Both groups end the engagement with huge smiles!

Thank you for all your support Boeing. We hope you’ll come back and visit us again next year!
