Supporting Veterans is Important to Us

It’s one thing to say we support our U.S. Military, but it’s another to show it. At United Access, we do everything we can to show our support. That includes helping veterans through the grant process and working with the Department of Veterans Affairs to help them obtain the proper grant funding for wheelchair accessible vehicles, offering veteran discounts on wheelchair accessible vehicle rentals, and partnering with veteran support organizations like the Paralyzed Veterans of America and Wounded Warrior Project.

 

We are just as proud of our veteran employees. About ten percent of our workforce is comprised of military veterans. The military trains people to lead by example as well as through direction and inspiration. Veterans also understand the dynamics of leadership and that teamwork grows out of responsibility and camaraderie. These are qualities we look for in our employees and values we hold in high regard in our company.

Meet a few of our Veteran Employees here at United Access:

 

  • Jonah, Service Manager in the Dallas area, has been with United Access since 2014. He was a Staff Sergeant in the U.S. Marines. Jonah started as a part time porter and quickly worked his way up to the Service Manager position.
  • Andrew served as a Major in the U.S. Army. Andrew now works with us as a Mobility Specialist in the Dallas area.
  • Van started his career at United Access in 2015. Van was a Corporal in the U.S. Marines and now works in the Cape Girardeau area as a Service Manager.

 

Showing even further commitment are the men and women who continue to dedicate their lives to serving our county. One such young man, Brodie, is the son of our General Manager in our Springfield, Missouri store. Brodie graduated last month from 2nd Battalion, 39th Infantry U.S. Army. He was the third youngest in his company (leaving for boot camp 5 days after high school graduation). During that time he earned the Sharpshooter Pin in Marksmanship. Brodie will be heading to college in January. After he earns his degree, he plans to go on active during with the hopes of completing Airborne and Ranger school.

Supporting our troops isn’t just a thing we say, it’s a part of who we are as a company.

The Contarinos Are Helping to Make a Difference

The customers that walk through the doors of every United Access store aren’t just customers; they become long-term partners, friends, and family. Cathy Contarino is one of those people. Cathy, Executive Director at Impact Center for Independent Living, has been a customer of United Access for more than 20 years. Through the years, Cathy has owned four full-sized vans that they brought in to be serviced by United Access, and then later purchased four wheelchair accessible minivans, and she’s trusted the Mobility Specialists at United Access to help customize each vehicle to her specific mobility needs.

Without reliable accessible transportation, it can be challenging for wheelchair users to get back and forth to work, get to doctor appointments, and even everyday errands become trying. In Cathy’s role at Impact, an organization that helps people with disabilities achieve maximum independence in work, school, house and every part of life while participating equally in their community, it’s vital that she makes it into the office each day. Without her wheelchair accessible van, Cathy would not be able to operate this non-profit organization like she does today.

Helping people isn’t just important to Cathy; it’s a value that the Contarino household holds dear. Cathy’s husband, Matt, started looking for a change in his career. He wanted to be with a company where he could make a difference in people’s lives. Cathy, who followed United Access on Facebook, saw that they were hiring so she suggested that Matt apply. Matt has now become part of the United Access family, working as a Title Specialist at the corporate headquarters in St. Louis.

This month, Matt and Cathy purchased a 2016 Toyota Sienna with a BraunAbilty conversion as their latest wheelchair accessible van. We can’t wait to hear about all of their new adventures!
