National Disability Employment Awareness Month

SYLMAR, CA  The month of October commemorates National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) supported by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).  Build Rehabilitation Industries is proud to serve the employment and service needs of the intellectually and developmentally disabled.

This October, the DOL has chosen the theme: INCLUSION DRIVES INNOVATION.  This theme is consistent with the uniquely innovative culture found at Build.  This year, Build launched the Entrepreneurial Services Group.  This Group focuses on creating businesses that hire people with disabilities while simultaneously meeting a service or product need in the community.

Build has provided employment opportunities and solutions for 9,000 workers with disabilities for over 50 years.  Build’s legacy programs include: Supported Employment, Work Activity, Independent Living and the Options Behavior Program.  This year, Build will launch three new programs, including Build Entrepreneurial Services, the Quest Community Engagement Program and the Build Club Educational Program.

Strong partnerships help enable Build to Make a difference in the lives of many.  These partners are both local and international companies and include companies like Galpin Ford and Lowes Home Improvement.

“At Build Rehabilitation Industries, we strive to promote employment opportunities for workers with disabilities, while upholding their rights to self-determination and encouraging self-sufficiency  We are honored to be a part of NDEAM and celebrate employment for workers with disabilities.” said Matt Lynch, CEO of Build Rehabilitation Industries.
