Changing Lives for the Better
Brevard Achievement Center assists individuals with disabilities achieve vocational and social independence. Services include an adult day training program that provides classes and employment opportunities, employment services to help those wanting to gain employment in the community, transitional services for students coming out of high school, and employment through 14 federal contracts at nine locations located throughout Florida and one in Puerto Rico.
“BAC has an overarching vision to build a community where all citizens can experience the pride that comes with being independent, resourceful, and self reliant,” President and CEO Amar Patel explains. “This is created through helping our individuals with disabilities achieve vocational and social independence.”
BAC continues to make strides towards this vision by growing their government and commercial service contracts where over 80 percent of employees are persons with a disability. Patel also plans to increase their production opportunities by partnering with local businesses. These contracts allow the organization to continue to provide the much needed support, such as the adult day training and employment services.
Local businesses can utilize BAC as a valuable resource for light production and manufacturing, mailing services, and other support services like custodial and warehousing. Local companies who partner with BAC create more valuable work for their clients, help BAC financially, and create a moral/ethical standard for their business.
Said Patel, “To be a part of the success story of a client who is able to live independently and integrated into our community is emotionally fulfilling and keeps all of the BAC staff coming back for more.”
