It's What People CAN do that Matters

We have been busy promoting positive employment outcomes for people with disabilities by encouraging employers to recognize the value and talent they bring to the workplace. Many of Charlottes finest businesses and organizations have hired, retained and advanced someone with a developmental disability.

What these employers have found is InReach participants are hard working, dependable, motivated and engaged in their work. Ambassadors for your diversity and inclusion culture. Don't just take our word for it.

Are you ready to embrace the talents and skills that individuals with disabilities bring to our workplaces and communities and to promote the right to equal employment opportunity for all people. Please contact Elaine Walters at ewalters@inreachnc.org or 704.536.6661 ext. 456

Much gratitude to those businesses that employ

Barrie Wiggins Memorial Fund

After a valiant battle with brain cancer, Barrie Wiggins sadly died in March. In honor of the many ways Barrie helped secure the future of InReach, we have established the Barrie L. Wiggins Memorial Fund. The fund will provide emergency assistance such as rent, utilities, food and clothing to families caring for a loved one with a disability.

Barrie was a true southern lady who was incredible devoted to her faith, her family, and her profession as an attorney with McKaig and McKaig. Barrie was the catalyst behind tremendous support InReach as received. The support has enabled us to continually improve programs and services to an increasing number of individuals. Through this fund Barrie will continue to touch the lives of many.
