HELPING THOSE WITH DISABILITIES TRANSITION INTO THE WORKFORCE
For most people, work provides a source of identity, life meaning, and the ability to provide for themselves and their families. The quest for these “good things in life” does not end because a person has a disability, Through innovative person centered programs, Polus Center has been supporting people with disabilities to find meaningful work for more than 30 years.
SUPPORTING a family's decision to care for their loved ones at home
Family Care at Home connects families with a network of home-based supportive services for those facing the need to care for loved ones at home. This Polus Center sponsored program provides an option for at-home family care if an elder or a person with disability is enrolled in Mass Health Insurance, or qualifies for Mass Health.
direct support for coffee farmers and their families
Throughout the world, coffee and landmines overlap. From countries as diverse as Ethiopia, the "birthplace of coffee," to Colombia, landmines impact the lives of coffee workers, their families and their communities. The Coffeelands Landmine Victims' Trust is a vehicle for coffee corporations to give something back to the farmers who sometimes risk their lives to pick the crop to support their families.
