Whatís On the Horizon for NHU in 2014?
Building a Remote IT Workforce
NHU is working on a pilot program that will enhance the troubleshooting, customer service, and organizational skills of aspiring Information Technology professionals with disabilities in an effort to prepare them for remote help desk support positions. As part of this project we will develop partnerships with experienced IT professionals and hiring managers in an effort to improve employment outcomes of our participants.
A Continued Commitment to Provide an Accessible Wisconsin Outdoors
After several years of planning and coordination, Wisconsinís 8th Wheelchair Accessible Cabin will break ground in 2014 at Harrington Beach State Park, in Belgium, Wisconsin. Just a short drive from Milwaukee, this cabin will provide thousands more families with much needed respite in the Great Outdoors of Wisconsin. We will continue to post updates as the building progresses!
