Respect Contracts -
The Florida Legislature established the Respect program in 1974 to provide employment opportunities for people with disabilities. CARC is one of 48 community agencies in Florida who provide 1660 Floridians with disabilities with meaningful job opportunities across the state. Through Respect we have janitorial contracts with DOT for the I-10 Baker County Rest Areas, I-75 Ellisville Rest Areas and the DOT Lake City Maintenance Yard. We also have a contract for the production of office products which are produced by clients in the Adult Day Training Program and are sold to state offices throughout the State of Florida.

AbilityOne Program -
For nearly 70 years, the AbilityOne Program, formerly Javits-Wagner-O’Day (JWOD), provides employment opportunities for people who are blind or have other severe disabilities. The AbilityOne Program is a coordinated effort by the Committee for Purchase from People Who are Blind or Severely Disabled, National Industries for the Blind (NIB), and NISH-Creating Employment Opportunities for People with Severe Disabilities. CARC is a NISH certified community program through which these jobs are provided. We currently have contracts with the local VA hospital for their lawn service and switchboard operations.
