Help wanted: Butte employer, service providers join forces to raise awareness about disabled workers

September 28, 2018View for printing

om and Kristi Cronnelly are no strangers to the barriers disabled people face when they seek to break into the workforce.

For some, the process is less like breaking the glass ceiling and more like tearing down a brick wall.

As for the Cronnellys, they know the issues well.

Kristi is a job coach with Silver Bow Developmental Disabilities Council Inc. They also have an 18-year-old son with autism who works 30 minutes a week at a local candy shop, while the couple employs about 12 disabled people at their Uptown restaurant OMG! Mongolian Grill.
