Wolf Administration to Announce Partnership with CVS Health to Create ‘Jobs that Pay’ for Pennsylvanians with Disabilities

Pennsylvania

"Governor Tom Wolf announced today a partnership between CVS Health and OVR’s Hiram G. Andrews Center (HGAC) in Johnstown to create ‘Jobs that Pay’ for individuals with disabilities at CVS stores across Pennsylvania. …

'When people with disabilities hold jobs and earn competitive wages, they can achieve greater independence and inclusion in the community,’ Governor Wolf said. ‘However, far too many Pennsylvanians with disabilities are not working. Part of my administration’s Employment First initiative aims to address that disparity. Establishing partnerships between service providers and employers, such as the one that will be announced today between HGAC and CVS Health, will help individuals with disabilities find meaningful, sustainable employment.'"
