Employer Resources

Let’s reduce the unemployment rate for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) one employer, one employee at a time.

We are so thankful you’re here!!

It is our mission not only to hire and grow our inclusive workforce of individuals with and without IDD, but also to help employers take the next step in doing the same.

Together, one company at a time, hiring one individual with IDD at a time, we can not only begin to reduce the national 80% unemployment rate for those with IDD—but transform lives, and company cultures and results for the better.

We know because we’ve done it.
