Envision’s PRIDE Adult Day Program is designed to provide employment to people who are legally blind as well as intellectually and developmentally disabled. These hardworking individuals can support in the completion of many tasks, including:
 
  • Packing / Shipping
  • Order Fulfillment
  • Recycling
  • Re-boxing/Repackaging
  • Packaging / Labeling
  • Small Assembly
  • Kitting Projects
Jobs have ramped up for the group recently. An order from a school district in Kansas required the PRIDE consumers to box, label and mail 1,700 highlighters, 1,700 dry erase markers and 1,700 permanent markers, all from Envision Dallas.

They also built and boxed 7,200 gel pens and 960 black ink pens. The pens had to be completely assembled from small parts and then also boxed, labeled and mailed out.

For questions about contracting with PRIDE, please contact Jared Holcomb, PRIDE Program Manager at 316-425-7140 or jared.holcomb@envisionus.com.
