Michelle, who became paralyzed from chest to toes due to a car crash in 2002, recently earned bachelor’s and master's degrees from Roosevelt University. As of November 2018, the Chicago woman is now gainfully employed with ComPsych, the world's largest provider of employee assistance programs, servicing more than 45,000 organizations and 100 million individuals throughout the U.S. and 160 countries.
At The Chicago Lighthouse, we have created hundreds of good-paying jobs for members of the disabled and veteran communities by aggressively seeking out members of both groups for positions in our Customer Care Centers and in other key positions at our organization. In addition, we provide computer training, rehabilitation, counseling, resume preparation and other services to help qualify people for positions in both the public and private sectors.
We salute the efforts of employers who have partnered with us and followed our lead in opening their doors to more individuals with disabilities.
