On Tuesday, September 18th, 2018 Mission Store was presented with the “Angel Award” at ATN Access Inc.’s Annual General Meeting & Client Awards Ceremony. The award is given to exceptional employers that have a partnership with ATN Access Inc.
ATN Access Inc. supports and empowers individuals who have all types of barriers and disabilities. ATN works to provide opportunities for all by assisting clients to find employment and reach their educational and vocational goals to improve their quality of life.
Mission Store was approached by ATN Access Inc. about two years ago, when we opened our new location at 797 York Street. Since then we have fostered a positive relationship that we are all proud of.
“We all strive to have workplaces that are respectful, kind, patient, supportive, and where we feel seen. Mission Store is that for our clients and we are grateful for their partnership,” the ATN Access Inc. expresses.
Mission Store works with individuals who are taking classes at ATN Access Inc., and who are beginning their journey into the working world or building their skills, through paid placements or volunteer opportunities.
Burt, the Store Manager at Mission Store states that “everyone deserves a chance to build their skills and to be respected in their workplace, and Mission Store is happy to have such hard working individuals with us through this partnership with ATN Access.”
