The Employee of the Year award went to Lisa Brien, Program Director of New To You Too. Lisa is enthusiastic and unflappable in her determination to teach individuals marketable skills at the New To You Too store in Central Falls. She has taken the Employment First initiative to heart and as a result has investigated potential employment opportunities for consumers, throughout Pawtucket and Central Falls. Lisa joined the Neighborhood Watch Program as well as the Central Falls Small Business Association and these contacts have resulted in job placements for several consumers, earning competitive wages or volunteering with potential for future employment. Lisa has been with The Arc for 21 years!
