According to a recent news release, the New Mexico Human Services Department/Income Support Division (HSD/ISD) recently received the 2015 SourceAmerica® National Achievement Customer Award (Non Federal) in recognition of the department’s support of employment for people with disabilities. HSD/ISD works with local nonprofit agency, Adelante Development Center, to help provide employment opportunities to 111 people with disabilities.

 The award is presented annually by SourceAmerica, a national organization that helps connect people with significant disabilities to employment, to recognize an organization that provides outstanding support to the employment of people with disabilities. NMHSD was nominated for the award due to their partnership with local nonprofit Adelante Development Center, which provides document storage, scanning, and document destruction services to HSD. This large-scale contract initiated by the HSD’s Income Support Division, helps Adelante to employ 111 people with disabilities.
