Helene Lopez, Program Manager

Gila Employment and Special Training coordinates with County, State and Federal Governments in a joint effort to better serve the citizens of Gila County.
History of G.E.S.T.:
The Demonstration Project began in 1975 and was founded on the principle of “Acceptance”.  Establishing community acceptance of the individuals with disabilities is and always will be our priority.  In 1996 the program name was changed to Gila Employment and Special Training, but our goal remains the same as we provide daily living skills and employment supports to all G.E.S.T. clients.
