A conversation with Sherry Becker What’s going on with the changes in services at NIVC?

Like any other business, the changes at NIVC are driven by our customers. People with disabilities want to be a part of their community by living and working alongside all kinds of people, not just other people with disabilities. For many years NIVC has helped people find jobs in local businesses, but also provided paid work training at our stores and Work Center. New policy legislation and advocates want all services for people with disabilities provided in community settings. Soon funding for services in segregated settings will no longer be available. Our mission of helping people work is not changing, just how and where we do it.

Does this mean that the NIVC Work Center and Affordables stores have to close?

buses or moved to Mason City to receive paid work training services. Now most of the 400 individuals we serve on an annual basis will never work for NIVC. They are referred to us to help them secure employment, not be their employer. We have 6 satellite JobLink offices and are serving people in 11 counties. We used to ask people to come to us, now we go to them. In the future we will still need retail and production workers to meet the demands of our business customers, but those individuals will be employees of NIVC, earning competitive wages. NIVCs workforce will be smaller and less than half will be people with disabilities. Some employees may face barriers to employment other than disability. An integrated employment workforce not only allows us to meet government requirements, but also expands our services to other populations who need support to become contributing members of society.

What are some of the ways NIVC Services helps people be involved in their communities?

Everything we do at NIVC focuses on the ultimate goal of employment, but life should not be all about work. Our community activities service expands personal, social and work skills. Participants are actively involved in choosing and setting up the activities while learning about community resources and how to use them. We all need opportunities to enjoy family and friends, as well as opportunities to enrich our lives by giving back through volunteering. The combination of work and social activities help people have the healthy work/life balance we all desire.

What about the future?

I’m optimistic and excited about the future! In spite of the challenges Absolutely not! Our businesses are a associated with managed care, I critical part of our mission. The Work believe discussions about the impact of employment on health and wellness has Center and Affordables stores produce revenues that support our employment validated the importance of our mission services for North Iowans with disabilities.

Veronica Hernandez

Tammy Kiefer Walmart Bakery Assistant

Walmart, Custodial Services/NIVC Supported Community Living Services

“We had been married for 36 years,” Veronica Hernandez says of her husband, Ledo. “After he died in 2014, it was really overwhelming for me. I needed to learn to be the provider.” Veronica has been a client with NIVC Services since 2009, and is now working in custodial services at Walmart. Through the challenging experience of losing her husband, she was able to get connected with NIVC Services’ Supported Community Living service. “There were so many things that I needed help figuring out,” she says, listing a few: “my taxes, legal aid, Social Security, all of the paperwork that needed to be turned in. I wouldn’t have known who to call or what to ask, and I wouldn’t have done it on my own because I was so overwhelmed. I needed someone to guide me through.” NIVC Services’ Supported Community Living services staff assisted Veronica with a wide range of skills and services to ensure that she was able to continue living independently. “Emily and I worked on writing a budget, making sure I turned in paperwork and forms


on time, and she helped explain everything so that I understood what I needed to do.” Throughout these difficult times, Veronica was able to maintain her employment and continued to do an excellent job. “All of this was so stressful that sometimes it was hard to keep going to work. It really helped to have my job coach to talk to. I’ve never been comfortable with talking to people, or sharing concerns, or asking for help, but my team listened to me and helped me work through things. They helped me stay on track when things were really hard for me, and I am a lot more confident and independent because of that.”

“I’ve been working at Walmart for almost three years now. First I was a cashier, then courtesy staff, and now I work in the bakery.” Tammy Kiefer is an excellent example of how NIVC Services clients can achieve career advancement in their jobs. “I’d always been interested in the bakery area, and the manager asked me to help in there during graduation season one year because it was so busy,” she explains. “I found out that I really liked it, and they asked me to transfer to the bakery staff!” Tammy is able to work fast and do a good job at her tasks, earning her a special nickname: “My manager calls me the “Cupcake Queen” because I can frost and package about 500 cupcakes during my shift.” She also helps with packaging and stocking bread and other bakery items throughout the department. When asked

Sukup Manufacturing Co. is proud to partner with NIVC

about her favorite part of her job, Tammy compliments her coworkers. “We’re like family, and going to work is like coming to a second home. My manager is always available to talk and I can be open and honest with them.” Tammy continues to receive job coaching support to help her maintain her success. “It’s been important for me to have a job coach to talk to. She meets with me during my break time or after work, and we talk about my shifts. She helps me talk through problems or things that are bothering me, and I always feel encouraged. I know she is there to help me if there is something I don’t understand.”

Thank you NIVC services for making a

difference in our community!

“It’s a lot of responsibility,” Tom Tetrault says of his position as the maintenance person at Lime Creek Nature Center. “I am the only maintenance person for the nature center building, so it’s important for me to be there every time I am scheduled. Otherwise, the center staff would have to take time out from their jobs to do my responsibilities.” Tom is in charge of cleaning the Nature Center building top to bottom, three times a week, outside of visiting hours. “I like this

I was interested in this job because I felt I would be a little bit familiar with the equipment, and it might help me in my hobby. I’ve learned a lot and I enjoy my job.”

IVC helps local businesses find reliable employees and provides support for the people we serve working in our local communities. Three years ago we expanded our training site locations through JavaWorks, a coffee shop/ sandwich shop located in the Commons of the Mason City Public Library. This is a great public/ private partnership focused on employment.

Some clients who work at JavaWorks are preparing for open jobs in area businesses in North Iowa. But, other familiar faces will ensure continuity of quality services. It is a fun, inclusive environment for all. JavaWorks has begun catering coffee along with a limited menu using the small kitchen on-site in the Library Commons.

NIVC sponsors North Iowa’s first performing arts group starring people with disabilities

he first play, “The Kingdom of No-Where,” was presented in a one-act, one-show performance. On Saturday, April 23rd at 7:00 p.m. at the NIVC Services’ main office location 1225 S. Harrison (industrial park), in Mason City. Refreshments with the cast immediately following the show. The play was written and directed exclusively for Glee North Iowa performers by Mickie Schuessler. Schuessler, a director, teacher, and choreographer, has many years of performance experience, including 25 years as director of the Studio of Performing Arts. The second season of Glee North Iowa performing arts


began in early August and meets on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month. Another original production is in the works for next spring. Last season, the actors learned about their speaking voices, expressions, blocking scenes, creating sets, props, and costumes. “It is our belief that participation will increase an individual’s confidence,” said Mickie Schuessler. “There are very few performance groups featuring individuals with disabilities. I am so excited to have another year with these talented actors. A performance group highlighting actors with special abilities has been a dream of mine.”

Giving is social A note from Lisa Yunek with the Development Office.


his year’s National Disability Employment Awareness theme is #InclusionWorks. We love this theme. There is but one world and everyone is a part of it. NIVC Services was one of the first organizations in North Iowa to provide inclusive employment services for people with disabilities. This is also called integrated employment services. The words inclusion and integration imply membership and belonging. The people we serve belong to families and communities but are often socially isolated. So, to better support their confidence and sense of belonging, we have expanded our community integration social,

We are grateful to our foundation partners

activities when people are not at work. Social inclusion builds social skills and confidence and therefore strengthens everyone’s work environments, too. NIVC Services sponsored the creation of North Iowa’s first performing arts groups for people with disabilities, Glee North Iowa, as another way to build confidence and social skills. Plus it is super fun to participate or just watch. How can you help? We are looking for fun! ● Share tickets to events or sponsor classes, ● Help with transportation, ● Donate to our programs, ● Make sure your events and activities are accessible for people with mental and physical disabilities.
