Helping a Neighbor in Need

Over the course of three days, Jack Weber, Vice President of Project Management along with additional Trehel team members, assisted the West End Co-op with a variety of smaller renovation projects. With a growing program and limited space, the team renovated an exterior storage room and provided a new opening for interior access. The floor of the room was elevated to match the adjoining space elevation, along with adding a new door and frame at the access point. The storage room now houses the activity carts used for training.

With these enhancements, the West End Co-op will be developing modular work stations that can be used to assess and train individuals with brain injury and stroke in areas such as carpentry skills, plumbing, basic electrical and other tool usage.

“Trehel has a long-standing tradition of providing services, sponsoring and volunteering for worthwhile organizations in the Upstate region that are making a difference,” said Jack Weber. “The project for West End Co-op gave us the opportunity to support a close neighbor located in the west end of downtown and fulfill our mission to give back to the communities we serve.”

The Co-op is a non-profit, one-of-a-kind community rehab employment program that helps individuals with brain injuries ease back into the workforce.
