We have only begun our work…
As our founder E.W. Mays said, “We have only begun our work.” Great strides have been made over the past four decades – about the time Mays Mission was founded. We have seen the passage of the Education for All Handicapped Children Act, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and most recently, the Americans with Disabilities Act. Yet statistics show a vast majority of disabled individuals cannot find employment.
We feel that most employers meet the disability before they meet the person – that is to say that we, as humans, have a terrible habit of “judging a book by it’s cover,” assuming that an individual with an obvious disability is not suited for employment or simply cannot do the job. How wrong we are.
We encourage you to ask an employer if they have considered hiring the disabled. You could be the one that makes a difference in the life of a physically or mentally challenged individual.
If you would like more information, please call us at 1-888-503-7955 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s all help make an employer aware of the potential of people with disabilities.
