The Surplus Exchange

also shares a unique partnership with some area agencies serving the

vocational needs of persons with disabilities. The facility and aspects of

the daily operations of the Exchange are open for such agencies to conduct

vocational training and occupational assessments for their consumers.

These vocational

programs provide a variety of benefits to everyone involved. Persons with

disabilities receive the benefits of a friendly environment in which to

learn new skills. Persons without disabilities learn about the disabled

and their capabilities. And the daily operations of the Exchange benefit

from the valuable assistance provided by these vocational consumers.
