Owner of iHome Services, a Largo plumbing, electical, gas and HVAC services company is proud to be involved with the PlacementWorks program

Largo, FL, July 22, 2014-  David Olivieri, President of IHome Services in Largo, FL, was recently presented with a plaque in recognition of his support of Tampa Bay’s disabled citizens through the Placement Works program. The plaque was presented by Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos. PlacementWorks associates and iHome Services staff were also on hand to congratulate David on receiving the recognition.

iHome Services offers plumbing, electrical, air conditioning, and gas repair and installation services to residential and commercial customers in Pinellas County. The company prides itself on being involved in the community. 

David was contacted by Steve Brown, Employment Specialist at PlacementWorks in St. Petersburg. Placement Works is a non-profit job placement organization for individuals with disabilities. Steve told David about Grey Garrison, a young man with Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism. He agreed to provide a job for Grey who began working at iHome Services a few weeks later.

“Having Grey here has been great,” David said. “He is very good at organizing parts for us and he helps keep our inventory in order. It’s great to be able to match his skills with our needs. It makes me feel good to be able to provide work for him.”

David recommends the program to other employers in the Tampa Bay area. “These guy need to work,” he said, “and if you can find jobs for them that align with their strengths, it’s a huge win for everyone.”
