Because the words we use shape the way we think, when looking through the lens of the word “disabled,” we tend to think about what’s missing in a person. As a result, we often miss seeing the unique capabilities these people have. The goal of The Uniquely Abled Project is to shift the paradigm of thinking from “disabled” to “uniquely abled”.

Recognizing people as uniquely abled can make a significant difference in the lives of millions of people, in the cost of government, and in the ability of people and organizations to thrive. That’s why we are passionate about transforming the lives of uniquely abled through meaningful employment.

The UA Academy Program

The UA Jobs Program

Job placement that matches the inherently unique skill-set of the uniquely abled

The Uniquely Abled Jobs program matches men and women to jobs that do not require specialized training, but are a perfect fit for their unique skillset. Typically these are repetitive tasks, tasks with objective process instructions, where they typically work alone.
