Our mission is to promote socialization and provide vocational assessment, training and employment opportunities to enable persons with disabilities to fulfill their greatest potential within the community.

History
In 1966, a group of people recognized the need to help people with disabilities achieve their fullest potential. With a strong desire to make a difference in people's lives and a total of fifty dollars in cash, this group of twenty-seven business leaders, professionals and citizens of the community, organized to form the non-profit corporation called SUNCOM Industries.

SUNCOM

Initially, funds were raised through donations and grants. A building was purchased south of Sunbury and set up as a training center and workshop. In 1969 SUNCOM began operations with a staff of three serving three people with disabilities.

Today, a staff of 150 provides training for independent skill development, vocational work skill enhancement, and community involvement. We serve over 450 people in two vocational rehabilitation facilities, three adult training programs, two Community Unity sites and a supported placement program.
