One in every five Americans is affected by a disability that impacts vision, hearing, mobility, mental development or ability to learn. This translates into 54 million people striving to gain greater independence within their communities. Nearly 70 percent of adults with disabilities between the ages of 18 and 64 are unemployed, with more than two-thirds of these adults actively seeking job opportunities. To combat this, it is our MISSION to assist individuals with disabilities to gain and to sustain employment.
But we can't do it alone.
With YOUR help, we are able to continue on with our work and change the lives of thousands of individuals seeking assistance.
And for that, we thank you.
Thank you for supporting the mission of Project HIRED. We truly appreciate your commitment.
