The mission of PRIDE Industries Foundation is to expand employment opportunities for people with disabilities.
PRIDE Industries Foundation was established in 2008 with the mission "to expand employment opportunities for people with disabilities." We do this by providing job creation, employment preparation and placement, and employment support services to people with disabilities who are employed and/or served by PRIDE Industries.
PRIDE Industries is also a non-profit, founded in 1966 to create jobs for people with disabilities. Since then, PRIDE has grown to employ and serve more than 2,700 people with disabilities in 13 states. We serve people with a wide range of disabilities, including developmental disabilities, learning disabilities, physical and sensory impairments, and mental illness.
PRIDE provides a breadth of services to prepare, employ, and support on-going employment for people with disabilities. Jobs are created with PRIDE through our social enterprises and with community employers, with placements matched to the individual needs and skills of the people we serve. Within PRIDE, we create jobs in a variety of fields, including electronics manufacturing, supply chain logistics, food services, grounds maintenance, contract packaging and fulfillment, and facilities services.
In addition to creating jobs, we help people with disabilities prepare for and sustain employment by providing soft-skills training, vocational training, assistive technology, job development, transportation, and job coaching. Through these services, PRIDE is empowering people with disabilities to identify and capitalize on their strengths and succeed in meaningful employment.
