October Is National Disability Employee Awareness Month

This October is a time to recognize the contributions of Americans with disabilities and to encourage all citizens to ensure equal opportunity in the workforce. First declared in 1988 by Congress for the month of October to raise awareness of the needs and contributions of disabled individuals, National Disability Employee Awareness Month is a time to recognize that people with disabilities have equal or higher job retention, lower absenteeism, and that their job performance is equal to their non-disabled counterparts. It is a time to urge employers to hire persons with disabilities. How can you do this? Call at 888-503-7955 or email us at info@maysmission.org and we will be happy to send you our brochure on “On-the-Job Training”, which you can share with employers in your area. 

Thank you for your support of people with disabilities!
