The mission of the Sonoma County Mayors’ Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities is to support the membership’s efforts to encourage and promote the gainful employment of people with disabilities by creating a strong, friendly collaborative relationship between the employers, human services agencies, state, county & city elected officials, community organizations and individuals in Sonoma County.
The Committee will review, at the request of a member, programs that they believe will enhance and extend the mission of the SCMCEPD. Programs that have the support of the membership will be approved. Programs selected become Standing Committees and must have a chair and financial support.
