February 2014 - Three years after delving into a new business venture, with the goal of bringing in more job training opportunities for folks served in our vocational program, Futures Document Destruction Services has a good number of customers and is viable program component.
Customers in Wellington and Caldwell are provided with a locked 64-gallon document security container. They fill it, have it picked up, and their sensitive documents are shredded at our secure site. “I appreciate the way (the service) can help me out within 24-48 hours,” says J.P. Buellsfeld, a local financial services provider.” The problem with a Wichita-based shredding service is they generally pick up only once a month.”
“This business opportunity has been a successful training opportunity for us,” says Cristy Newlin, vocational supports coordinator. “It requires following strict security procedures but is a simple and repetitive task for those who struggle with more technical jobs. The skills learned by the men and women who work on this help prepare them for more independent job opportunities in the community.”
