Our History

Originally named Metro Industrial Services, our mission was to provide sheltered workshop employment for people with mental disabilities. In 1983, this entity was spun off into an independent organization known as Metro Industries. Having greatly expanded that original mission, our corporate name was changed to Employment Solutions in 1998.

Our Funding and Operations

Our $12 million annual budget is derived from a variety of sources including the sales of goods and services to the public, Department of Medicaid Services, Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, Bluegrass.org, rental income and student tuition.

As a non-profit organization Employment Solutions is non-owned and is governed by a Board of Directors. The Board membership represents a variety of community and business interests who are recruited for their particular backgrounds and expertise. The Board works strictly on an unpaid, volunteer basis. Any excess revenue generated by Employment Solutions is retained by the organization to further strengthen and promote our charitable mission.
