Before the interview, Jimenez has visited the employment services in which more than a hundred people with disabilities work, many of them neighbors colmenareños. The councilwoman has had the opportunity to talk to some workers, such as José Antonio or Leticia, who did internships at the City Council, an opportunity that has given them access to employment..

The municipal responsible has also known firsthand the work of the professionals of the Day Center for people with high support needs, Residence for people over 45 years old and Occupational Center.

With this visit, which was also attended by the general director of Envera, Enrique Grande, Envera and the City Council of Colmenar Viejo strengthen their historic relationship and will promote the non-working training practices that people with intellectual disabilities have been doing in the consistory since 2018.
