President & CEO

UniqueSource® Products & Services is committed to partnering with our Member agencies to provide employment opportunities for Pennsylvanians with disabilities. As the President & CEO, my primary role is to foster existing and build new relationships with public and private sector organizations to benefit those who rely on UniqueSource for employment opportunities.

Brenda Bonafair

Vice President, Corporate Engagement

For over 30 years, I have been honored to help people with disabilities find meaningful work – because having a job is the greatest step towards achieving independence. We are proud to say that every product we manufacture and every service that we provide is done by someone with a disability right here in Pennsylvania. People with disabilities are working in many of our state’s call centers and help desks; they are employed as document shredders, in mail preparation, and provide custodial services in buildings all over the Commonwealth. We manufacture safety vests and yellow-green t-shirts for PennDot and the Pennsylvania Turnpike, blankets for our State prisons and hospitals, and remanufactured toner cartridges for many office areas.

Our business is about building relations and changing lives, with our Members, our Customers, and people with disabilities. We are totally dedicated to the mission and values that have been set for UniqueSource.

Jeffrey Holt

Vice President, State Manager, Photo ID

I joined the UniqueSource team in 2000 and am proud of the great service we provide to the people of Pennsylvania through our long-term partnership with PennDot. Today, 27 of our Member agencies provide supported employment to more than 440 people with disabilities at the state’s 98 photo license centers. In addition, UniqueSource provides facility management for the centers, thereby creating additional employment opportunities through janitorial services.

Employment through the Photo ID program showcases each person’s abilities to work in customer service and make a real contribution to our nation’s safety and security by providing secure credentials to more than 2.6 million customers annually. This extremely dedicated workforce assists customers with organ donor registration and motor voter registration. They also take the photos for the driver licenses and photo identification cards issued by PennDOT, as well as the lead and asbestos remediation certification cards issued by the Department of Labor and Industry.

When you visit a PennDOT Driver License Center, you will see these Photo Techs in action … please say “hello” from me when you get the chance!

The individuals who manufacture products and perform services for UniqueSource to market and sell are dedicated and committed to doing a good job. That strong work ethic is cultivated by our Member agencies, which recognize and build upon the strengths and abilities of each employee. When given the opportunity and the proper tools, people with disabilities can do the work they are entitled to and overcome their personal barriers.

Vice President, Sales

UniqueSource® Products and Services purchases provide employment for Pennsylvanian’s with disabilities.  The reality is that these people have tremendous “ability” yet suffer from high unemployment.  They know how to overcome challenges, are productive and are a very dedicated workforce.  For them it is much more than just a paycheck.  So with great humility and steadfast dedication our sales team is privileged to represent our Member non-profit organizations who strive to provide work for individuals with disabilities throughout Pennsylvania.  It’s my pleasure to work with the professionals at UniqueSource to bring to market the product and services represented in this website.  This is work done in Pennsylvania performed by Pennsylvanian’s.  You’ll find our contact information in the “Staff” section.  Please let us know how we can help you!
