Quality Inn & Suites at Olympic National Park, 134 River Road in Sequim, recently celebrated its second year of working with Morningside Services of Port Angeles.
“Morningside has changed the lives of individuals with disabilities by matching their skills and interests with positions at our hotel,” said the inn’s general manager Nancy Merrigan.
“With the help of Morningside, we’ve hired five employees, some with significant barriers to employment, but this relationship has been mutually beneficial. In our tight labor market, it’s difficult to find engaged employees, like Annie, our newest Morningside hire. Annie tells me she’s ‘Super excited to be an employee.’”
Morningside consultant Lauren Best said they are grateful for the opportunity to collaborate.
“The Quality Inn & Suites continues to set the standard which was why we chose them as Outstanding Employer of the Year last year,” Best said.
Morningside is a private, non-profit 501(c)3 community rehabilitation program providing employment services to individuals with disabilities.
