A special word from our founder, Delven Mearis

I have been working with persons with disabilities for over 25 years, I am in quest of solving the stigma and discrimination that persons with disabilities face when it comes to jobs and affordable housing opportunities and the fact that they are left out of community development framework. It is often assumed that persons with disabilities cannot be an incredibly productive participant of the community but with some assistance these

persons with disabilities will produce very successful results and become active contributors to the community. For this reason, I am extremely keen to ensure that persons with disabilities who seeks Mearis Workforce Solutions (MWS) for support are given the provision needed to properly take care of their specific needs.

Moreover, I seek to fill a huge void in the persons with disabilities community. I feel a sense of duty to ensure that persons with disabilities have access to the job market. In addition, persons with disabilities are not fully supported with affordable housing and/or have easy access to transportation to live without difficulty within their communities. In addition, this service is in demand for these reasons; Employment is low for persons with disabilities within the workforce, and there is a worldwide movement of persons with disabilities working for equal opportunities, self-determination, and self-respect.
