We were so sad to hear that a former TNC teammate, Michelle Christian, passed away this week. Michelle was the driving force behind the implementation of our EYES Program and a fierce advocate for people with disabilities. She was also an amazing wife and mother and a coach to her sons and community youth. Michelle’s legacy will continue through our EYES program and will impact many students as they receive the assistance they need to become independent and successful. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.

EYES Tour

What a great opportunity for our EYES students to take a private tour of the Aviation History & Technology Center in Marietta! They were able to see multiple planes including personal jets, a glider plane, F-14A Tomcat Fighter plane, and the inside a C-141B StarLifter Cargo plane. They learned about teamwork and the different functions of team members related to aviation. This was in partnership with Atlanta Public Schools (APS) GROW Camp. The students also toured Truist Park and enjoyed lunch at Copeland's of New Orleans - Atlanta in Kennesaw. #EYES #EarlyYouthEmploymentServices #Educate

Meet Quinny

Dog therapy anyone? Since TNC became a dog-friendly workplace, Quinny has become our most frequent canine visitor. When Cathy adopted her from a shelter 8 months ago, Quinny was very afraid of strangers, but now she is part of our culture and has made many friends. Visiting our EYES students is her most recent adventure. Win-win-win!

Thank you all for your kind wishes for my birthday. YOU are what makes my day so special, and Tommy Nobis Center what I had envisioned .Thank You All for what you do. 🤩
I was told by a long time friend I know . He told me about the Tommy Nobis Foundation. Could I possibly get a vehicle from them ?
Hi, I am a Research Assistant from the University of Queensland, I ask if you would be able to circulate this survey to relevant people. We are conducting a survey seeking input from employed autistic adults to advance knowledge and practice of autism employment. If you or anyone you know would be interested in taking this survey, please refer to the information below. We thank you in advance for any assistance and support you can offer. Research For and By Employees on the Autism Spectrum We want you to complete this 15 minute (approx.) survey to find out how autism employment practices are working for you? Benefits to you: Your information will be analysed along with other employees on the spectrum to identify what workplace practices are most and least helpful to autists having a satisfying worklife. Completing the survey will also give you the opportunity to reflect on what aspects of recruitment, selection, and socialisation are helpful to you personally. Please click on either hyperlink below or scan the QR code to go to the confidential survey website. http://tinyurl.com/y8rzntc6 Autistic Employees Study Thank you for providing your voice.
Sure didn`t know Tommy had passed until today, great guy
Today is a sad but joyful day for me. Sad for the people I am leaving behind but joyful and grateful for the opportunity that God has opened for me. After fifteen years of working for the Tommy Nobis Center today (under one of their federal contracts) is my last day. Fifteen years ago I walked into the Tommy Nobis Center discouraged and frustrated over the fact that I could not find a job that would be patient with me to learn the job or take their time to teach me the job. God used the Tommy Nobis Center to help me to develop the tools and the confidence I need to do a job. Through their program of helping people with disabilities find jobs and people with barriers to employment find a job I was able to work with one of their contracts they with different federal government agencies. I am grateful for the people that God used at the Tommy Nobis Center that invested in me and helped me to develop the confidence I need to do a job and even the confidence to move on. I am grateful for people like Hirk Williams Judy Coveyou-Tatro, Peggy Withrow, Linda Mosher and Sally Meadors. Also Grateful that I had supervisors (more leaders than bosses) like Hirk Williams and Judy Coveyou-Tatro that set the example of what it means to be a leader not just a boss. I am grateful for my mom who told about the Tommy Nobis Center fifteen years ago. Judy Coveyou-Tatro and Hirk Williams really set the example of what the mission at the Tommy Nobis Center is all about Philippians 2:3-4 says "Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his things, but every man also on the things of others" These verses described some of the people at the Tommy Nobis Center. As well as other that God has used in my life to help me become the man I am today. I am so grateful to the people at the new job that I will be starting on Monday who knows me but yet is willing to give me a chance. Like I said its a sad as I am leaving friends behind. But a joyful day as I move on to better opportunites.

Is your group aware of any job opportunities in the Dallas/Hiram area for a 20 year old with mild autism and no work experience? He has been trying for a year and a half and about to give up!
I'm going to miss job club very much although I had some rough and tough times last year.
