Made In New Jersey: Employment Horizons provides jobs for people with disabilities
For this week's Made In New Jersey, News 12's Brittany Miller visited Employment Horizons, a place where the job isn't about the work but about the people.
Employment Horizons helps hundreds of people with disabilities find jobs, from bagging groceries to accounting. Many of the workers says the job has given them a new beginning.
CEO Lisa Montalbano says "It is unlike any other workforce or any other job you'll ever see."
The local organization has partnered with major companies for almost 70 years. Since 2018, employees have tested, cleaned and repacked for Fios. There's been more than a million items shuffled through since then. Employment Horizons also partnered with Tiffany & Co.
