Social Benefits

We all benefit from better.

  • Our community becomes better when people help and support one another; when you empower people, the possibilities are limitless.

  • Social understanding and inclusion allows all people to live up to their fullest potential.

  • A disability-friendly community allows all people to live, learn, work, play and socialize as active members of society.

Economic Benefits

An estimated one in five people in the U.S. live with some form of disability.

  • The global collective spending power of people with disabilities and their families is estimated to be nearly $8 trillion dollars.

  • People are more likely to buy from brands who reflect their own values.

  • Businesses who meet the needs of consumers with a disability understand the economic benefits and as a result are more competitive and profitable.

  • Communities with inclusive workforces realize higher productivity, buying power, tax revenues, and a lower number of persons who are dependent on social welfare programs.

  • Becoming a disability-friendly employer opens your organization up to an untapped talent pool and a far broader customer base.

  • With support, employees with disabilities can be just as productive as their colleagues and more loyal to their employer.
