Yakima Specialties dedicates facility to long time director

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- A Yakima business remembered one of their own in a special dedication ceremony Friday.

Yakima Specialties dedicated its current facility to long time Executive Director Jerry Farley.
 
Farley spent 32 years with YSI before he passed away in January.

YSI's current director says Farley was a huge part of the organization, training and working with hundreds of disabled adults over his career. And touching the lives of many.

"He was such an integral part and a character of it. I don't think people will ever forget of feel as deep a lose, seems like he's still with us," said Patrick McCarthy.

The new Jerry Farley Facility provides carpentry jobs for many disabled adults in the Yakima Valley.

YSI also has laundry and janitorial services that give disabled adults training and real-world work experience.
