LECANTO, Fl. (February 28, 2019) – Fred Eiland works at Lowe’s and the Key Training Center Adult Day Training workshop in Inverness. For 14 years, Fred has worked at Lowe’s retrieving carts and keeping the entryway clean. “He likes his job very much, he is very helpful and always has a smile on his face,” said Donna DeMarzio, Key Training Center supported employment specialist. Fred is quite the busy man! In his spare time, he enjoys going to Key Center functions, bowling, fishing, and taking his girlfriend on dates. Thanks to the Key Training Center and Lowe’s efforts, he can live like any other Citrus County resident. A true representation of this Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month’s theme, “Together we have no limits.”

This March, the Key Training Center celebrates Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. Currently serving over 300 developmentally disabled individuals, the Key Training Center works with businesses and organizations in the county to provide their program participants social, residential, educational, and vocational services that allow for real-life opportunities that promote growth, choice, and independence with kindness, love, dignity, and respect. “These partnerships with our community have proven that together we have no limits,” expressed Key Training Center Executive Director Melissa Walker. The Key Training Center has partnered with Gull Broadcasting Group in celebration of Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month and encourage the community to tune into Citrus 95, Naturecoast Country 103.3/104.3, Greatest Hits 106, and The Fox 96.7 on March 6th to learn more about the organization and its mission.
