Port Townsend - The Developmental Disabilities (DD) Program at Jefferson County Public Health, in partnership with the DD Advisory Board, Skookum, and Concerned Citizens, is celebrating National Disability Employment Month by honoring the following employers: Subway, Pizza Factory, Pane d'Amore, Enclume, Port Townsend Business Guides, Pippa's, Glow, Goodwill, Homer Smith Insurance, Uptown Nutrition, Safeway, Chimacum School District, and Bayview Restaurant.

These businesses are leading efforts to employ local people with developmental disabilities, and leading by example when it comes to eliminating barriers to work. By allowing local people with developmental disabilities to fully participate in the community workforce, everyone wins. Members of the DD Advisory Board and Jefferson County Commissioners presented three of the honored businesses with certificates of appreciation.
