Helping Those Who Can’t Help Themselves

Peninsula Services, and its programs to empower adults with disabilities, will be highlighted at a free seminar on Thursday, September 15. Interim CEO Todd Faulkner will speak about the value of work for those who have long been marginalized or those who lack the supports needed to seek and maintain employment.

“Work gives individuals a sense of purpose and self-worth,” said Faulkner. “For many, it defines who we are and it’s a source of justifiable pride.”

In addition to improving individual and family finances, Faulkner said, work helps people connect socially. He added that all individuals, regardless of disability, “deserve the chance to be full members of their community where they can live, learn, work, and play through all stages of life.”

Peninsula Services, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is headquartered in Bremerton and serves people with disabilities in Kitsap County and surrounding areas. The online presentation, sponsored by Compass & Clock, will start at 11:30 a.m.

The monthly “Compass Points” lunchtime seminars are presented live online, so you can interact directly with experts in their fields. Visit for more information and registration.
