ROCHESTER, Minn. - A local charity is being awarded a grant from Mayo Clinic.
The group Possabilities provides employment services for people with disabilities. They serve over 600 people with disabilities in Minnesota and were recently awarded a grant to make some technological upgrades. Joel Pralle is the director at the program and said the grant will help keep better track of individuals with disabilities and also allow members to spend more time with people in the program.

“This allows us to track information individually for people very person-centered. We want accurate data for an individual so we can have outcomes and goals that fit an individuals,” he said.

The program is designed to help both children and adults who have disabilities.
