October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month, an advocacy effort to remind everyone that 70% of people with disabilities in our country are unemployed. That’s a huge impact on our economy when 18.3 million people are not participating in the workforce.

Adelante directly employs over 400 people with disabilities, and helps more than 100 more find jobs in the community each year.

Despite that, not all of the organizations, businesses, government agencies, and individuals who work with Adelante are aware that we are a nonprofit agency actively engaged in finding and providing jobs in the community for people with disabilities.

You, along with everyone who shops at or donates to Bargain Square Thrift Store, or utilizes Adelante Enterprises for their mailing, packaging, shredding, and janitorial work, are helping to make a positive impact on these numbers through your participation and support.

Please look over our list of capabilities to see if there are other ways we can work together, and share this information with your colleagues, friends, and family who may also benefit from Adelante’s services.
