Meet Janeth. Janeth is a self-employed artist at ArlingtonWeaves, Etc. She is one of the most prolific weavers in the program.

Janeth has been weaving for seven years and gains most of her artistic inspiration from her travels and her community. She enjoys coming to ArlingtonWeaves, Etc. where she creates unique weave structures that represent beauty, utility and comfort. She challenges herself every day to learn beyond the basics. “The best thing about weaving is being embraced as an artist when others admire my work!”

Dedicated participants like Janeth use their talents and skills to strengthen their independence. To support self-employed artists like Janeth, visit www.servicesource.org/donate.

The holidays aren’t over yet! Bloom Artisans are still selling their holiday-themed artwork at ServiceSource Virginia’s Oakton location, and according to Bloom Artisan, Theresa, the holiday stuff is her favorite – “I like the snowmen and candy!”

Because of the program, Theresa has learned so much. Leslie Morris, Director of the Self-Employment Program and Retail Sales Manager says, Theresa’s “flair for design is so evident in her work. She has become so much more extroverted which flows over to many other areas in her life.”

To support Theresa and other Artisans, consider giving the gift that gives back by purchasing Bloom products at the Oakton Community Resource Center, 10467 White Granite Drive from 8:00 am – 3:30 pm.

The ServiceSource family just got a little bit bigger! As of January 1, ServiceSource affiliated with the Pioneer Adult Rehabilitation Center (PARC) Community Foundation, an organization that has dedicated itself to serving individuals with disabilities in the Clearfield, Utah community for more than 45 years! Together, our mission is to facilitate services and partnerships that support people with disabilities, their families, their caregivers, and community members in order to build more inclusive communities.

PARC provides employment and other services to individuals with disabilities by operating affirmative employment contracts with the Federal government under the AbilityOne Program and state government under the Utah state use program. PARC is accredited by CARF, the Rehabilitation Commission, for the services that it provides to more than 400 individuals annually.

PARC has already replicated our Bloom self-employment venture, pictured below. Now, across the country, Artisans are expressing their creativity and building self-sufficiency by designing unique pieces to sell.

We are very excited for this affiliation and are so proud to continue growing our community.

Mary is one of many talented Bloom Artisans. She designs beautiful greeting cards and gift bags for people to share with their families and friends, especially during the holidays. Mary carefully makes each of her cards look nice and neat and loves using glitter and gems to add a bit of extra sparkle. Her favorite part of being an Artisan is selling her work to the community, “I feel so proud seeing other people buy and enjoy my work.”

Leslie Morris, Director of the Self-Employment Program and Retail Sales Manager, enjoys Mary’s positive attitude and friendly smile. “Mary chooses all her own designs and likes what she produces. She is so much more confident in her work and all other areas of life” as a result of the self-employment program.

Give a gift that gives back this holiday season. Visit Bloom at the Oakton Community Resource Center, 10467 White Granite Drive from 8:00 am – 3:30 pm.
