AUBURN – Joel Packer, executive director of Pathways Inc., has announced that the agency received the National Industries for Severely Handicapped certificate of achievement for 2005.

The certificate is presented in recognition of the high standards of performance maintained throughout the past calendar year in providing a product/service for the federal government under the Javits-Wagner-O’Day Program.

In evaluating Pathways’ community rehabilitation program’s eligibility for the award, the national agency considered the following criteria: the length of time Pathways community rehabilitation program has had a product/service on the procurement list; the consistent record of accurately fulfilling contracting requirements; the timely submission of reports and commissions; the adherence to regulations; and the procurement agency’s overall evaluation of contract performance. It said Pathways community rehabilitation has excelled in all of these areas.

The recognition symbolizes a “job-well-done.” Outstanding overall performance in the program proves that persons with severe disabilities can be productive, contributing members of society.

Pathways is a private, nonprofit corporation dedicated to serving persons of all ages having physical, mental and/or emotional disabilities.
