The Standard Charitable Foundation Grants $11,500 to Community Vision, Inc.

The Standard Charitable Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Standard Insurance Company (“The Standard”), has awarded an $11,500 grant in support of Community Vision Inc.’s Employment Connections Project.

“The Standard Charitable Foundation’s grant will help individuals with disabilities lead independent and fulfilling lives,” said Joe Wykowski, founder and executive director of Community Vision. “With the generous support of organizations like The Standard, we can continue to build a community of stable, self-sufficient individuals through employment.”

The Employment Connections Project enables adults with developmental disabilities to achieve and enjoy long-term economic self-sufficiency. To make that possible, Community Vision works with employers to reduce barriers to employment for people with disabilities. Community Vision facilitates communications between employers and program participants and connects participants with employment opportunities as well as asset-building, financial literacy and homeownership programs.

“The Standard Charitable Foundation is proud to support Community Vision, whose efforts align so closely with our own goal of supporting programs that increase employment opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities,” said Greg Ness, president of The Standard Charitable Foundation and chairman, president and CEO at The Standard.
