1996 was a busy year for Project Genesis. We placed 47 BRS clients in competitive employment. Department of Developmental Services (DDS) program is added. We began long-term follow up services for 20 DDS clients who were placed in employment through our BRS Program. We produced our first brochure to market our services. We purchased our 1st computer and copier (before then, we had been making 5 cent copies at a t-shirt shop). We had 3 working Managers and our first CFO, who came on board to do payroll and billing functions as well as to job coach.
Below is Project Genesis’s first logo before it evolved to what it is today.

”The veterans of our military services have put their lives on the line to protect the freedoms that we enjoy. They have dedicated their lives to their country and deserve to be recognized for their commitment. - Judd Gregg.
We couldnt agree more and we would like to say thank you to all the veterans and the ones who work for us for your service to our country.
After Project Genesis was incorporated in 1991, Virginia Kerensky continued to work hard to provide more services. 
In 1992 she was able to add Special Education Support Services (SESS) with Ellington Schools in the Fall. There is still only her and no benefits.
In 1993- Project Genesis now has 2 employees. Virginia and someone else. 95% of revenues are from BRS. We finally get medical benefits!
In 1994 - We now have 5 employees and nearly all services are still BRS funded.
& in 1995 - The agency gets its own phone number. Up until now we used Virginia’s home phone.

A contract with Bureau of Rehabilitation Services (BRS) was signed; Adults with Disabilities 1991 job services began in the Fall.
