PRIDE Industries mission is to create employment for people with disabilities and, as the leading employer of people with disabilities, it is our vision to inspire and accomplish an inclusive world where people of all abilities have equal access to achieve their employment goals. We led the industry in person-centered vocational rehabilitation, training, support services, and employment opportunities for people with disabilities—both visible and invisible. We designed proprietary, ground-breaking employment programs for people with disabilities including the I AM ABLE Employment Helpline.


We create employment for people who experience workforce barriers, including those with disabilities, veterans, foster youth, and trafficking survivors. Through personalized employment coaching, training, and placement, PRIDE Industries helps individuals of all abilities realize their true potential and contribute to their communities.


PRIDE Industries’ I AM ABLE Helpline is the only employment helpline of its kind in the country that helps people navigate every step of the employment journey.

The Helpline runs on a budget of about $300,000, with three full time employees assisting people in both English and Spanish M-F 8am -6pm. The success has been more than 4,000 calls have been answered, creating more than 125 jobs, resulting in more than $3,000,000 in salaries. Help us continue this service by making a donation to support the helpline.

Your donation will support this vital service, so that more people with disabilities can experience the dignity of a paycheck and the satisfaction of meaningful work.
