"It's Good For Business"

We employ more than 400 adults with developmental disabilities AND place hundreds of clients in jobs that are the perfect match with their individual interests and skills. And the companies who hire them gain even more: the employers we work with report that our clients not only do their own jobs with commitment and pride, they inspire the same of their coworkers. As a result, morale improves, absenteeism decreases and productivity is enhanced. Because hiring people with disabilities isn’t just good for them, it’s good for business.
