Services to employers
Alliance is a trusted partner of employers because they know that the individuals we place with them will be hardworking, carefully prepared, and strongly supported. Many are skilled in specific services, such as custodial work, document imaging, landscaping, food services, and a variety of manufacturing and service tasks. We help individuals with physical or mental disabilities become valued members of the employer’s workforce, at the employer’s worksite or at Alliance facilities.
Business and industryAt Alliance’s own facilities, individuals with disabilities are performing services for both governmental agencies and commercial employers in areas such as mail fulfillment, material handling, micrographics, reprographics, and customer-defined services.
The major difference in our business service division from other Alliance services is that instead of providing clinical or a support type services to people with disabilities or mental health concerns, we provide jobs for them. Most of our work comes through the federal (Abilityone) and state (Maryland State Use) that provide set-aside contracts employing persons with disabilities. These programs are designed to provide opportunities to significantly disabled individuals who want to work, but due to their disability have found it difficult to obtain and maintain competitive employment. Although we do not provide intensive support services, our program is designed to provide emphasis on developing a level of structure, assistance and flexibility needed to accommodate the needs of our employees that cannot be provided by most competitive employers.
Our state sites include the William Donald Shaffer building at 6 St. Paul Street , the Maryland State’s Health and Human Services building on Saratoga Street, the State Highway Administration’s (SHA) ,the State Licensing Bureau. Our newest contract site is at the 201, 300 and 301 West Preston State Building complex. These downtown sites employ over 150 individuals.
We have been working closely with the General Services to “green up” their buildings. This means special efforts in their recycling program as well as using environmentally friendly cleaning chemicals, paper products and conserving energy.
One of our biggest contracts is at BWI airport This site has an “around the clock” service schedule, every day of the year.
We are also at UMBC in Catonsville
We service two janitorial contracts for the federal government. One is at the FDA complex in White Oak Maryland where we employ thirty-five full time workers at this modern campus-type location. Our other federal janitorial site is on Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Harford County where crew is responsible for the cleaning of a large Army Research Laboratory. Additionally, Alliance has recently began servicing GSA vehicles at Aberdeen Proving Ground. (See recent contract awards below.)
