In2Vision Supported Employment Programs Inc. (I2V SEP) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that maximizes the personal and economic independence of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities by helping them obtain and sustain employment in the community. Individuals with disabilities want to be productive members of their communities. They want to work and contribute to their households the way so many others do. Having a job is a means for them to feel connected to their communities and to be needed, to feel important. I2V SEP's dedicated team is committed to providing individuals with disabilities valuable training in communication, time management, resume development, interviewing skills and on the job training. In helping these individuals become highly sought after applicants, they are also helping employers fill staffing needs. It's a win-win for everyone. I2V SEP's services are only partially funded by the State of California which means fundraising is not just something they do for fun. It's what's necessary for them to keep their doors open. In donating to I2V SEP we are doing our part to ensure that these vital services don't go away and that more individuals with disabilities can realize their dreams of having a meaningful, important job.
Israel Ibanez and Steve Lopez are running the 2016 L.A. Marathon to bring to light the importance of individuals with disabilities being valued members of our communities through employment. Please support I2V SEP by donating to Israel and Steve's fundraising page.
