Advocacy in Olympia 2017!

We love our annual trip to Olympia to share stories of supported employment with legislators.  This year dozens of clients met with nearly 40 legislators from 18 districts across Western Washington.

Legislators hear about businesses in their district that benefit from the diverse workforce and Trillium’s supports; job seekers show their video resumes hoping for a connection to a job; and of course we share our great appreciation for our state’s funding of supported employment.

Additional Highlights:

  • The Kitsap Peninsula Business Journal also published an article on Trillium titled “Trillium opening doors for all”. Read it here!
  • We are privileged to announce a new addition to our Board of Directors, Karen Satterberg! Karen has been the Community Relations Director for Wesley Homes Lea Hill in Auburn for 6 years. She comes to us with a background of being in the Financial markets for 26 years prior to that. Karen graduated from WSU in Hospitality Management and worked for Hyatt Hotels right out of school. Active in Auburn Rotary and being on their board, working on the Committee for Partners for Work program, is how she came to know about the wonderful work that Trillium is doing. She also brings personal insight as she is a mother to a 20- year-old, Autistic young man.
