Have you ever heard of Preferred Employment and Living Supports? I had not until I got an invitation from Amanda Tague to learn a little more about the company and the services they offer. Add to that, they have a new location and they are celebrating a 4 year anniversary so I loaded up the camera and went for a visit.
Preferred Employment and Living Supports mission is simple, "To empower individuals faced with employment and life barriers to live higher quality and more independent lives through customized, relationship based and goal centered supports." What that boils down to is they are there to help individuals who might need a hand keeping their home safe and clean, making medical appointments, time management, behavioral therapy, resume and job assistance, mobility and transportation, nursing services, relationship building and more. A lot of the things that people take for granted in the day to day of life, others might find remarkably overwhelming and might cause them to isolate themselves.
Preferred Employment and Living Supports also partners with some pretty big organizations like the Michigan Department of Community Health, The Brain Injury Association of Michigan and the National Rehabilitation Association to find the people who can best use their services and expertise. I was able to sit down with Deb Tober, Dave Betlejewski and Samantha Scott who are partners in the company to learn a little more, and find out a little about the open house coming up. Take a listen
If you'd care to join them for the open house, their new location is 1205 Peck Street in Muskegon. The event is happening October 2nd from 4p-6p with a ribbon cutting at 4:30. Some light refreshment will be served and you'll have an opportunity to meet the staff and learn more for yourself about what they do. If it's a way for people in Muskegon to live better lives, we're glad to help share the story. Our best wishes to Preferred Employment and Living Services!
