With the company’s recent relocation from Lake Ozark, Missouri, to Boca Raton, Florida, Saltability — a spa industry business providing quality Himalayan salt stone treatments and products for resort, day, medical and destination spas — recently announced its partnership with Seagull Services, a nonprofit organization based in West Palm Beach, Florida, that provides advocacy, workforce development and employment services for approximately 100 teens and adults with disabilities and their families. Through the partnership, Seagull Services employees will be measuring, packaging and labeling Himalayan salts and Saltability products for wholesale and retail purchase.
“Intentionality is a guiding theme behind everything we do at Saltability, from the products we purchase, to the services we offer, to the organizations we choose to partner with,” says Ann Brown, Saltability founder and CEO. “Since deciding on our relocation, we’ve made it a priority to find ways to invest in our new community and be proactive and intentional about how we can make a difference. Seagull is a life-changer for so many employees and their families, and I’m thrilled to be partnering with an organization whose mission enriches the lives of others.”
For more than 40 years, Seagull Services has offered educational, social, vocational, transportation and residential services aimed to promote achievement, self-reliance and independence for people who otherwise might face difficulty finding long-term employment.
“Seagull Services assists individuals with life challenges affecting their self-sufficiency to live in dignity and realize their full potential,” says Barbara Nurenberg, president and CEO of Seagull Services. “Training and education for people with disabilities are key components of that mission, and the Saltability partnership provides Seagull’s program participants new employment and vocational training opportunities.”
The types of skills involved in fulfilling the Saltability contract require attention to detail, which is important for each of Seagull’s program participants to master, Nurenberg says. Seagull employs a full-time worker for quality control, who helps ensure all of the work performed in the organization’s fulfillment house upholds strict quality control standards.
“Employment is at the heart of living a fulfilling life in the most self-sufficient way possible and becoming a part of the community,” Nurenberg says. “It’s at the heart of Seagull’s mission.”
“Seagull’s reach in the Greater Palm Beaches and Southern Martin County is incredible,” Brown adds. “They’re meeting their mission each and every day — ‘enriching lives, erasing barriers, helping people soar.’ I’m confident that Seagull’s strong and capable workforce will allow us to continue delivering the quality product packaging our customers expect while supporting and encouraging Seagull’s employees to find independence and fulfillment through their work.”
