WE GUARANTEE SECURITY AND YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE COMMUNITY

By using Gone For Good, you are giving hope and opportunity to adults with developmental disabilities. Many of the employees with disabilities at Gone For Good are working and earning a way for the first time. They are excited to have the opportunity to contribute and earn their own way, and their paychecks are increasing as our business grows.  Together, you and Gone For Good are providing valuable opportunities for work to members of our community.

Gone For Good is owned and operated by United Cerebral palsy of the North Bay.  Although we provide the most secure shredding in the industry, what makes us unique is the fact that our program was developed to create jobs for adults with disabilities.  In addition, all of the revenue from the document destruction services helps to support other programs at UCP of the North Bay.

UCP of the North Bay Program Stories: WineBev Services

Laressa has been working at WineBev Services since 2016. Although she is a hard worker and very detail oriented in production, she has always wanted to work in the community, independently. Since the beginning of the pandemic and the temporary closure of our WineBev Services program, Laressa set a goal of attaining a job in the retail field. She independently applied for a number of positions and was hired at Walmart in November. Our Supported Employment program in Napa has assisted her in registering with Department of Rehabilitation, so that she will be able to have a Job Coach to support her in her new position. As well as working at Walmart, she continues to attend employment related Zoom classes through our WBS program. In time, Laressa has stated that she wants to save up so that she can take a vacation to Hawaii, a dream she has had for many years. We are proud of Laressa’s growth, self-advocacy, and positive attitude that has helped her achieve her goals. WineBev Services will continue to support her as she moves forward in her life.
