Support rehab while you shop for the holidays!

 

For nearly 30 years Eisenhower Center has proudly searched for unique and innovative ways to approach rehabilitation.  One of our approaches was to open a 68 acre hobby farm as a vocational rehabilitation and residential/day-treatment program in Manchester, Michigan. As a part of this program (which includes a fully stocked wood-shop which would make even the most experienced carpenter envious), we’ve tried to add-on new and exciting vocational opportunities for our clients, including our recently opened Etsy shop.

 

MEC Markets is vocational rehabilitation for the 21st century. This website, the products listed there, and the entire back-end shipping process will be managed with the assistance of our clients.

So if you’re in the market for some beautiful, hand-crafted, and one of a kind gifts for your loved ones (like the barn wood string art pictured here), please check out our Etsy shop here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MECMarkets. Not only will your loved ones be ecstatic at the gift, you’ll both know you supported a good cause.

For more information about our farm, and how job opportunities for individuals recovering from TBI are created there, please contact Dan Bogosian, at 734 677 0070 x352. Also please check out some of the services we offer in our day treatment program here: http://www.eisenhowercenter.com/services/day-treatment/

Friday Keynote: Chris Ulmer

Chris Ulmer is the guiding force behind the Special Books by the Special Kids (SBSK) blog. A Penn State grad, Chris was student teaching and fell in love with the intelligence and humor displayed by his special ed students. After six months of sharing Facebook videos featuring those students, SBSK had gained 150,000 followers. That led to neurodiverse people around the world asking to be interviewed, and soon SBSK demanded Chris’s full-time effort.

Now an internationally renowned speaker, Chris is proud that the Special Books by Special Kids community has surpassed 2.5 million members and is the world’s leading neurodiversity movement.

 

 

If you are a survivor and require an aid to be with you at the conference, contact the BIAMI office at (810) 229-5880 to register your aid. The fee is $35 for them to attend and they must be registered in advance.

EC recognized for achieving Silver Status as Veteran-Friendly Employer

The Michigan Veterans Affairs Association (MVAA) recognizes employers that commit to military Veteran recruitment, training and retention practices by awarding those employers Gold, Silver, and Bronze level status as Veteran-Friendly Employers. MVAA’s Veteran-Friendly Employer program helps qualified organizations recruit and retain top veteran talent while providing others a road map to improve their recruitment efforts.

Last year, Eisenhower Center was humbled to be recognized by the MVAA and Governor Snyder – as a Bronze-Level Employer in the State of Michigan (pictured above). Since then, we’ve stepped up our game and MVAA has upgraded Eisenhower Center to Silver Status – an honor we greatly appreciate.
