Our Best Buddies Partnership

At MOD, making a positive social impact is part of our mission. We give people fresh starts, second chances, and the opportunity to thrive.

Approximately 81% of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) don’t have a paid job in the community*. MOD has hired over 300 employees with IDD in our stores nationwide. By partnering with Best Buddies, which creates opportunities for employment, friendship, leadership development, and inclusive living for individuals with IDD, more talented and dedicated people will get a chance to join the MOD Squad.

Read their stories. Support our efforts. And help us spread MODness to everyone.
