Peckham 2017- 2018 Annual Report
Peckham remains committed to celebrating our growth – of clients, of our social enterprises, of our ability to make a meaningful impact in the community. As we celebrate 42 years, we embrace our core values of compassion, diversity, opportunity and pride, and continue to challenge ourselves in our quest for being an ever-learning, ever-growing organization.
Peckham is a great place to learn. It is a place where individuals with limited skills and experience can leave armed with the necessary tools and resources to achieve their goals of self-sufficiency. A place where people can learn what is possible instead of impossible and spark a new belief, confidence and ability in themselves that maybe had once been overshadowed.
Peckham is a great place to learn.
It is a place where community employers and organizations learn how to create inclusive and accommodating work cultures and systems that help hire and retain people with disabilities and other barriers to employment. It is a place where Peckham staff continually challenge themselves to collaborate and innovate new strategies, training programs like the Skilled Trades and forge new partnerships and earn new contracts to help people with barriers thrive.
Peckham is a great place to learn
, not only for individuals with disabilities, but also, individuals who may not have a disability. Through this year’s creation of Peckham Diversified, we are now able to expand our services and provide paid job training opportunities for those who may not have a disability but encounter significant barriers to employment.
Continuous learning, innovation and principles of hard work, respect and the value of community has led us to our success this year. We are thankful to you, our partners, our customers, our donors and friends, who help make Peckham not only a great place to work, but a great place to learn.
