As a federally mandated agency to support nonprofits that create employment opportunities for people with disabilities, NISH is a perfect partner to assist HTC in its mission.
“But they go beyond the mandate,” said Rick Sebastian, president/CEO of HTC. “There’s a shared responsibility between us and NISH, and it becomes a creative relationship. ‘How can we provide even more opportunity?’”
NISH aids in the request for proposals and brokering of federal contracts, such as the contract between HTC and the U.S. Forest Service. Overall, the agency supports a network of more than 2,100 non-profit agencies and federal customers.
“They help us to be pioneers in creating opportunities for people with disabilities,” Sebastian said.
