|TRI Business & Career Training Center (TRI) is proud to announce that they have received the Agency of the Year award from the New York State Industries, Inc. for the Disabled (NSID).

TRI began its first major NYSID contract August 2014, partnering with American Maintenance to provide janitorial services at Nassau Community College. Over the past two years, this relationship has expanded to include cleaning sites at SUNY Stony Brook, SUNY Old Westbury and Pilgrim Psychiatric Center. More than 180 individuals are employed under these contracts, enabling TRI to support an efficient and economical procurement alternative, providing training and employment opportunities to a diverse workforce of people with disabilities while supplying American Maintenance with individuals that are capable of performing the quality service their company strives for. Together, we have created real, meaningful employment opportunities at fair, living wages for workers with disabilities.
