SARATOGA SPRINGS — In recognition of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, AIM Services, Inc., one of the area’s largest providers of services and support for individuals with disabilities, will receive $50K from the Business for Good Foundation to solidify plans for a “Career Center” to support its Employment Services program. In addition, the two organizations will pair up to create employment opportunities for people with diverse abilities within the BFG Owned network of businesses.

This partnership not only offers the necessary financial support to invest in AIM’s hope for a “Career Center,” which will further enhance access to training and technology, but it will also provide accessibility to jobs for the candidates within AIM’s Employment Services program by expanding their network of business partners. 

The funds will be used to purchase laptops and other office equipment that many of the job candidates may not have access to in their homes. It will also allow the program to invest in other partnerships that could further enhance career skills for those with specialized interests, like coding and graphic design.
