Hidden Treasures Academy receives a 2-year $120,000 grant for expansion of Job Skills Training Program
On average, individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities report a desire to work, however up until this year, nearly 70% of the disabled population struggled with unemployment -- a statistic that had not changed the last 30-years. Hidden Treasures Academy students have reversed that disheartening statistic and currently 92% of our students are employed or pursuing post-secondary education at Walter State Community College. On February 5, 2019, the President delivered his second State of the Union Address. In that address, he shared this encouraging news: "Unemployment for Americans with disabilities has also reached an all-time low." We are delighted that our organization has aided in lower that unemployment rate in the Lakeway area!
