Welcome to Our Agency

We at Abilities In Disability (AID) believe in providing equal opportunities to skilled people with disabilities. Where others have found closed doors, it is our mission to open them. Despite skills and education, many people with disabilities struggle to showcase their talents and abilities to contribute in the workplace. This is due to a misconception of disabilities, the employers’ lack of knowledge about accommodations, and a gap in mentoring, coaching and training. AID strives to bridge that gap, by providing education and training for employers, and career placement, mentoring and coaching for our clients with disabilities.

About Us

We at Abilities In Disability (AID) believe in providing equal opportunities to skilled people with disabilities. Where others have found closed doors, it is our mission to open them. Despite skills and education, many people with disabilities struggle to showcase their talents and abilities to contribute in the workplace. This is due to a misconception of disabilities, the employers’ lack of knowledge about accommodations, and a gap in mentoring, coaching and training.

AID strives to bridge that gap, by providing education and training for employers, and career placement, mentoring and coaching for our clients with disabilities. AID provides consultation and recruitment services to companies looking to fill positions with highly qualified persons with disabilities who we believe will be a good fit and become permanent contributors to excellence in their workforce. Not only will employers benefit from the addition of skilled and eager new hires, but also from added diversity in their workplace. Hiring people with disabilities brings companies to compliance with Section 503 of the Rehab Act and builds brand recognition through the Disability Equality Index.

We believe companies will discover that inclusive disability hiring is a win-win for their own growth, and the growth of their new employees. For the largely underutilized, skilled, disabled labor force, AID is committed to providing mentoring and coaching to prepare them for their new employment. AID screens candidates to assess their competence and compatibility with the companies served, ensuring that they are qualified and fitting with the companies’ culture and philosophies. With our processes for recruiting and job matching, we can ensure that our placements provide disabled people with the opportunity to grow and thrive in their new workplace environments, and to fully recognize their potential.
