Mines Press, a specialty printing company, is one of The Arc Westchester’s longtime employment partners, offering individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) opportunities to work in their communities.
Evan Rohrlick has enjoyed working at the Mines Press for more than 17 years. A valued member of the shipping department, Evan is tasked with assembling and labeling packages before they are loaded onto shipping pallets. His longtime coworker and supervisor, John, as well as human resources director, Alexandra, both recognize and appreciate Evan’s contributions to the team.
“Evan is punctual, hard-working and never stops,” John said.
“Evan has a great working relationship with his co-workers,” Alexandra added.
Dependable, consistent and friendly, Evan’s co-workers and bosses are happy to have him on the Mines Press team, and to welcome their new team member, Shannon.
Shannon is a graduate of The Arc Westchester’s Project SEARCH Autism Enhancement, a one-year internship program for individuals with autism spectrum disorder. The evidence-based, total immersion program, taught on New York-Presbyterian Hospital’s White Plains campus, is specifically designed to help graduates gain employment.
Shannon was pleasantly surprised, after graduating in spring 2019, by how quickly she gained employment and credits her success to her experiences in the program.
The Arc Westchester is proud to collaborate with more than 250 employment partners to provide meaningful employment opportunities for individuals with I/DD. To learn more about our Westchester employment program for individuals with disabilities, click here.
