behalf of Marian Moss Enterprises, it is my pleasure to introduce you to the
most integrated program in existence for people with disabilities in the West
Texas region. Originally incorporated in 1977, under the leadership of
Marian Moss, Lubbock Area Extended Rehabilitation Services (LAERS) was formed.
This initial beginning combined the talents of six separate agencies in the
Lubbock community to identify areas of overlapping services and to work
together. As a result, a housing program was initiated in 1978, which
provided residential services to fifteen people with various disabilities.
In 1983, the board of directors purchased Direct Mattress company to provide
both employment opportunities for people with disabilities to create a funding
mechanism for the continuation of services. The organization was renamed
in honor of Marian Moss in 1986.
Our 100+ employees are
involved in manufacturing and assembly of mattresses, box springs, pallets, and
a variety of assembly and packaging jobs. Work can be performed by groups
or by individuals. As the costs of labor rise, we can keep your contract
labor costs low, while still keeping quality control in mind. More
importantly, our employees are building self-esteem and skills necessary to be
productive, involved members of society.
Please feel free to come
by our offices and get to know the faces behind Marian Moss Enterprises.
As, Bill Lowell, former President of Marian Moss Enterprises first stated,
"Marian Moss was the founder and the molder of the group, and it has been her
strength and wisdom that it has become what it is today." Every day we are
living out her dream, and it can only get better as people like you partner with
Marian Moss Enterprises, Inc.
