Organizers say the job fair is held in honor of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, an awareness campaign that is held each year in October.  This year’s theme, “Expect, Employ, Empower,” is aimed at educating the public about disability employment issues and celebrate the contributions of America’s workers with disabilities.

Ka Lima O Maui has been “Enhancing Lives through Self-Reliance” since 1955 by providing a variety of different services such as Grounds and Custodial Services, Internship and Job Placement Programs and the Medicaid Waiver Program.
