What is Person Industries?
Person Industries is a community rehabilitation program that trains people with disabilities for jobs in the community. Employees receive on-the-job work experiences through Person Industries’ onsite and community employment work groups. PI operates the Person County Recycling Center as well as employs people in work groups in several local industries through production, housekeeping and confidential shredding contracts.
Located in Roxboro, North Carolina, Person Industries is operated by Person County Government. The program operates as one of the many community rehabilitation programs in North Carolina and indeed across the country. Although Person Industries is one of many, the program offers its own unique brand of service delivery from highly trained and qualified staff. Individualized service is the approach that staff takes from the moment a person is referred for services through the assessment and training process, right through job selection and placement. The appropriate mix of consideration is given to the employee’s skills and job preference. Such a mix serves to enhance job retention.
Person Industries has been in operation since January of 1985. Since that time the program has grown in the amount of people served, the programs of services offered, production contract work available and qualified staff trainers. Today, PI operates from two locations in Roxboro:
