The Arc is a nonprofit that works to help people with differing abilities. Through its Employment Services, "we're supporting people and looking for jobs of their skill set and their interest," said Joe Hues, The Arc NCR Director of Employment Services.
BELCAMP, Md. — At United Souvenir and Apparel in Harford County, David Rogers pulled a sweatshirt off a conveyor belt and folded it.
“I’m folding sweaters in three now,” Rogers explained, smiling.
He studied a chart for how many smalls, mediums, larges, and extra larges would come down the conveyor belt.
He waited for his coworkers to screen print the sweatshirts and set them on the belt.
“David is just, he’s amazing, he’s funny, he always wants to make you smile,” said Katelynn Selchert. Selchert is Case Manager at the Arc Northern Chesapeake. She worked with David for about three years in her previous role as a job coach.
