The Benefits of Working with Valley Collaborative

  • For over 35 years, Valley’s Vocational Services Department has been working with local businesses. Here is what some of our partners have to say about the benefits of working with Valley Collaborative.

    We Make it Work


    “It’s been an excellent experience in the five years that I’ve been here. Not only providing work for the Individuals but also working with Valley’s staff and their leadership team, it’s been nothing but a great experience.”

    Justin Saunders, 3M Supply Chain Manager

    Bristol-Myers Squibb

    “Here at Bristol-Myers Squibb the Valley Collaborative crew is a significant asset to the site and they do a fantastic job! They are very professional and always accurate with delivery and pick up times…There have been several times when we needed items post dated at the post office and the team was more than willing to help and have done so at a moment's notice… We at BMS Devens look forward to continuing our relationship with the Valley Collaborative students!”

    Lisa Vaira-Haslock – Project Coordinator of Technical Service

    Lantheus Medical Imaging

    “Here at LMI the Valley Collaborative students and their staff have been an integral part of the services provided to our client for almost two decades…Valley Collaborative workers have assisted with services like mail sorting and delivery, waste & recycling, grounds, cafeteria and plant maintenance. Not only do they perform these services with a sense of pride but they also bring smiles to every employee who has the opportunity to interact with them during the day…These types of programs should be incorporated in every business sector.”

    Bob Glover

    Accounts Manager, Lantheus Medical Imaging


    “Marshalls has had a long relationship with Valley Collaborative and we are very excited to continue that relationship at our Lowell location!”

    Bruce Stein, Store Manager
