It is an unassuming looking building near the corner of Speedwell and Morris Avenue in Morristown, but The Daily Plan It is a large, impactful operation that provides small offices and conference space to local businesses at an affordable cost, while using the business as a medium for job training people with disabilities.
The facility is run by Community Options and on Friday they were visited by Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco. Bucco visited this business that provides employment supports to over forty people with disabilities in an integrated office environment.
“Throughout my career, I have been a strong supporter of people with disabilities. That is why today was a great opportunity for me to tour and learn about The Daily Plan It run by Community Options, Inc,” Bucco said. “They provide valuable services to the business community, while training and employing people with disabilities in an integrated community setting.”
During his visit, Bucco was able to meet and interact with several of the participants receiving job training at the facility. People are trained on receptionist work, maintenance duties, filing, copying, labeling, mailings, and many more marketable skills.
Bucco said he was impressed with the dedication of the staff and the depth of the opportunities presented to the people working there and said they played a key role in empowering these men and women with disabilities to benefit from and contribute to society.
“I think this is a wonderful win-win situation for all the individuals and businesses that are involved,” Bucco said.
Before leaving, Bucco embraced several of the people with disabilities at the office, and said that he was proud of their hard work and wished them continued success on their career paths. Bucco also said he was there to support them in their efforts to live independently and achieve their goals
