Dubrow Vocational Celebration honors employees with disabilities who thrive in the workplace!

On Friday, May 10, Five individuals living with disabilities and their employers will be honored at the 18th Annual JFCS Dubrow Vocational Celebration Breakfast. Each of these individuals has demonstrated excellence over the past year as part of the JFCS Supported Employment Program. Thanks to customized training and follow-along support, these employees have thrived in the workplace – and their employers have had the privilege of tapping into the potential of these dedicated and hardworking individuals. Guests will have the opportunity to hear heartwarming client success stories, told from the perspective of the clients, their managers, and their JFCS job support staff.

This year’s honorees are Ryan Doyle – Virtua Mount Holly Hospital; Faris Ghananime – Gourmet Dining at Rowan University; Clint Lowe – Friends Village at Woodstown; Larry Pham – The Pop Shop of Collingswood; and Jill Tender – Katz Jewish Community Center. In addition to the individual honorees, Walgreen’s of Evesham will receive the Employer of the Year Award, and Karen Alaimo will be presented with the Barbara Abrams Supported Employment Award of Distinction.

Each year, the Dubrow Vocational Celebration pays tribute to the empowerment, independence, and potential of the clients in the JFCS Supported Employment Program, which provides community-based employment opportunities and follow-along support for adults with intellectual disabilities. Ellen and Ron Dubrow, z”l, had a vision to help individuals with disabilities thrive, and this annual event is lovingly sponsored to honor their memory by the Dubrow and Gelman families.

The 18th Annual Dubrow Vocational Celebration will be held at 8:00am at Congregation Beth El in Voorhees. Attendance is free but advance RSVP is required by clicking HERE.
