As Employment Horizons Assistant Executive Director Mark Stephenson said, "This [donation] was like the knight in shining armor coming in and saving the situation for many people."

Founded in 1957, Employment Horizons uses a three-step approach to help individuals with special needs achieve self-sufficiency - 1) pre-placement employment counseling, 2) intensive on-the-job coaching and 3) "follow-along" services to promote job retention. Many of the positions individuals enter such as photography laboratory specialist, pastry chef and child care assistant require work during hours when drivers and coaches are generally off-duty. According to Stephenson, the donor's contribution makes it possible for people to "get the support they need where they need it and when they need it" by paying drivers' and coaches' salaries. "This grant addresses several major barriers to obtain and to maintain employment," he said.
With operations across the state including in Essex, Morris, Passaic and Sussex Counties, Employment Horizons serves adults in their early-20s through their late-50s. It has become a go-to source for many employers who recognize and appreciate the counseling and ongoing support it offers to special needs adults. "The real neat benefit is we've become very well-known to employers; we're looked at as their screeners," Stephenson said.

"People who sustain employment have the dignity of being employed and really being a contributing, participating member of society," said Stephenson.

"At first glance, there is a lot that sounds positive," said Mark Stephenson, assistant executive director of Employment Horizons in Hanover, which trains and finds employment for the disabled.

"But there are issues we will have to watch and see how it plays out."
Of the 45 people placed in entry-level positions this year, only one earns less than $6 an hour and six others earn less than the new $6.15 minimum, Stephenson said.
