Ability Works Hosts EMBDC Event

Meridian, Miss.
Ability Works Inc. hosted the EMBDC's Business After Hours event Thursday.

Ability Works is a job training facility for people with disabilities. The company helps them go through vocational rehabilitation.

The clients get job training specifically designed for each person's needs to prepare them for the workforce.

"It's a great experience. People who come here gain confidence to go back to work," said Vicki Barton, regional manager. "They gain skills to go back to work, and they are able to take those out into the community and make careers with local businesses."

Ability Works served over 200 clients in 2013. It's located next to MSU Meridian on College Drive. It has seventeen locations in Mississippi.
