SELMA — After 35 years, Robbie Brantham said goodbye to Johnston County Industries. He will start attending a facility where he can receive more intensive one-on-one care.

Brantham participated in JCI’s community integration services over the years. These services helped him enhance vocational skills/work readiness, personal enrichment/life skills and to promote community integration and skills development to help with day-to-day issues related to working and supported employment.

“A new chapter is beginning for us,” said his sister, Kym Brantham Dixon. “We will forever be grateful for the love and caring that he has received all these years from JCI, we couldn’t ask for anything better for him.”

Community integration services are available at JCI to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and are designed to enhance vocational skills and work-readiness along with personal enrichment and life skills. JCI said the program promotes community integration and skills development to help with day-to-day issues related to working and supported employment.
