VERC Enterprises partners with a number of community organizations, in order to help provide employment and opportunity for Intellectually or Developmentally Disabled (IDD) individuals.
With nearly 400 employees, VERC has reached a goal set by its leadership team to have 20% its workforce coming from the IDD community. Working with organizations such as Best Buddies, Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress, ARC, Cardinal Cushing Centers, the Massachusetts Commission for the Blind, and The May Institute, VERC Enterprises employs and mentors these IDD individuals and they are a great addition to our family! Our company’s efforts have been recognized many times with awards that include the 2019 May Institute President’s Award, ARC Employer of the Year, and Employer of the Year by MAPSE (Massachusetts Association of People Supporting Employment First). VERC has also participated in the state’s employment re-entry program, offering opportunities for people who have been rehabilitated after having been incarcerated.
