Community Opportunities recognizes Elsberry Health Care Center for hiring individuals who have disabilities. Over the past year, the center has hired two individuals from their employment program, in the housekeeping department. Elsberry Health Care Center is a skilled nursing facility that provides excellent service to the residents it serves. Linda Haake, the Centers administrator, was happy to give someone with a disability the opportunity to work competitively.

Several businesses in Lincoln County have hired participants of Community Opportunities Employment Program. A diverse pool of individuals seeking employment is available through our employment agency at no charge to the business. People with disabilities have a range of abilities and are highly productive in many types of jobs. Businesses in the area have had access to a number of qualified employees through Community Opportunities’ agency since 1991.
