October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), and for us it’s an initiative we wholeheartedly embrace.
People, Pizza and Other Cool Stuff
MOD exists to serve people. We use our platform to make positive social impacts and we do it in two ways: providing meaningful employment and feeding our communities. MODlife highlights the impact we’re making in the communities we serve across the nation.
It’s a staggering statistic: Each year, 650,000 individuals exit the criminal justice system*. And one of the key indicators for a successful re-entry is employment.
MOD employs over 300 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). It’s an important initiative for us because 81% of adults with IDD do not have a paid job in the community.
