In 1966, a group of parents came together to discuss how to create opportunities for their adult children with disabilities. These parents—true pioneers of the modern inclusivity movement—came up with a solution that enabled their children to experience the dignity, independence, and sense of purpose that comes with employment. That solution was PRIDE Industries.
From our small beginnings over 55 years ago, PRIDE Industries has grown to become the nation’s leading employer of people with disabilities and those with other barriers to employment, including veterans and former foster youth. We employ individuals in diverse fields, including manufacturing and logistics and facilities management – all made possible by a wide spectrum of support services.
As PRIDE Industries has grown, so has the reach of its mission. We now share our unique expertise with companies of all sizes to help them achieve their diversity and inclusion goals – expanding our founders’ dream from a local effort into a service that benefits thousands of people across the country every year.
