Employees at different jobs


With a job comes dignity, respect and a better income. Better income means more choices, and more choices means greater freedom. Greater freedom means a more fulfilling life.

Consider the Case for Business

Hiring and retaining qualified individuals with disabilities will position a business to create products and provide services that will generate the loyalty of the second largest minority group in the United States.


According to the 2010 NOD/Kessler Foundation Harris Survey, “There is no significant difference between people with disabilities and their nondisabled peers in their ability to acquire new skills, their absenteeism, their flexibility to adapt to new situations and their dedication.”


88% of Americans prefer to give their business to employers who hire people with disabilities.  (Source:  Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation 2006)
