NATIONAL DISABILITY EMPLOYMENT AWARENESS MONTH, 2015
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA A PROCLAMATION
A quarter century ago, our country took a major step toward fulfilling the fundamental American promises of equal access, equal opportunity, and equal respect for all when the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was made the law of the land. While we have continued to make advancements that help uphold this basic belief, we must address the injustices that remain. During National Disability Employment Awareness Month, we celebrate the ways individuals with disabilities strengthen our workforce, our communities, and our country, and we recommit to cultivating an America where all people are able to build vibrant futures for themselves and for their families.

Our Employment Placement Services assist youths and adults with disabilities, aging individuals and veterans in conducting successful job searches.
Supported Employment is a unique employment service for individuals with the most significant disabilities who require ongoing support services to succeed in competitive employment.
Together, we can influence legislation and public policy that will ensure people with disabilities lead active, independent lives. Now more than ever, people with disabilities need to be active participants in their communities.
Full Community Participation & Economic Self-Sufficiency
“Since I founded IICDF in 2013, our goals have been to prepare youths and adults with a variety of disabilities for entry or re-entry into the workforce and assists them in securing pre-employment services as well as employment so that they can enjoy independent living, full community participation and economic self-sufficiency.”
