What We Do
Ability, aspiration, and a desire to contribute are common to us all – opportunity is not. One in five Americans has a disability; yet two-thirds of working-age adults with disabilities are unemployed. This is untapped talent and human potential just waiting to be put to work - and in the process, transform lives.
PRIDE Industries Foundation provides people like you the opportunity to join with PRIDE Industries as we work together to create and expand opportunities for people with disabilities.
For more than 50 years, PRIDE Industries has proven that when job training, coaching, assistive technology and placement are combined with opportunity – people with disabilities can work and contribute to their own increased independence.
Today, PRIDE employs more than 3,300 individuals with disabilities across the country, including veterans. We support more than 575 people with disabilities each year in community employment, and improve futures for hundreds of youth exiting the foster care system through education and job training. Your generous support helps to make this possible by:
- Expanding access to community employment - preparing and placing people with disabilities into jobs
- Empowering people with disabilities through job skills training, coaching, and employment preparation
- Providing the resources and tools necessary to ensure long-term employment success
Your unrestricted contribution allows us to direct your gift where it is most needed, providing services that enhance the lives of people with disabilities.
Gifts to the Power of Purpose fund allow PRIDE to support their greatest current needs, or you can designate your gift to support one of our important PRIDE programs.
