TAMPA — Feb. 1, 2019 — In an effort to help those with developmental and intellectual disabilities have more opportunity for a full life, the Alsco Tampa branch recently made a donation to support Quest Inc. For over 50 years, Quest has supported central Floridians with developmental and intellectual disabilities by offering choices and opportunities to live, learn, work and play.
Quest offers a wide range of services and support for individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities. The company not only provides a safe place for these individuals to call home but also offers quality long-term care, education, therapy, early intervention services for children and employment for youth and adults.
Each day, Quest serves more than 1,000 people with disabilities — both young and old — achieve their dreams of going to school, having a job, living independently and experiencing summer camp. They rely on private support through grants and donations of time and money.
The Alsco Tampa branch team has been a long-time business partner of Quest and was delighted to be able to support its effort as well. “I think Quest’s mission can be best summarized by a famous quote from Mahatma Gandhi: ‘The true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members,’” says Tampa branch manager Gilbert Rodriguez.
