Martinsville Campus Director John Scott presented a Distinguished Community Employer Award to ResCare Human Resource Manager Javetta Jones on Thursday, June 20. ResCare was founded in 1974. ResCare means “Respect and Care” and the organization’s mission is to assist people so that they may reach their highest level of independence. ResCare provides services to individuals with developmental, intellectual and cognitive disabilities. The ResCare organization views partnership with the community as the key to its success. Although ResCare is new to the community, the Ridgeway jobsite has been in the area for several years. Throughout that time, several students from National College have been employed and have become part of the mission of respect and care for others.
“The students from National College have greatly helped to assist in the care of our patients at the ResCare facility,” said Ms. Jones. ResCare has hired four students since January 2012 and one more as a result of the career fair held that was also held on Thursday, June 20.
