October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM)! NDEAM celebrates the contributions of America’s workers with disabilities past and present and showcases supportive, inclusive employment policies and practices that benefit employers and employees.  All month long, we will share inspirational stories of some of the individuals we employ or have helped prepare for and find employment.
