Our Mission, Vision and Values
The Need for PRIDE
One in five Americans has a disability. Disabilities don’t discriminate. They can be acquired at birth or at any point through injury or illness. Despite their prevalence, more than two-thirds of working age Americans with disabilities are unemployed — many not by choice.
PRIDE provides the support, training and opportunity necessary to help people with disabilities overcome obstacles and find meaningful employment. When we succeed, everyone benefits — the individuals we work with, businesses we serve, and communities in which we live and work.
To create jobs for people with disabilities.
To be the premiere employer of people with disabilities; the vendor of choice in the markets we serve; and the recognized leader in meeting the needs of individuals in overcoming barriers to employment.
Mission: Creating good jobs for people with disabilities while operating our business profitably.
People: Working together we create a challenging and rewarding environment, energized by the knowledge that our efforts make a positive difference in the community and the world.
Customer: Our customers – partners in our mission – look to us for quality, responsiveness and value. We are committed to their complete satisfaction.
Culture: Our success comes from the PRIDE way of doing business, characterized by entrepreneurship, integrity, passion, innovation, continuous improvement, safety, and a touch of zaniness.
