ABC Business Partners

Why Partner with ABC?

As you may know, ABC finds work opportunities for people with disabilities and assists them in a variety of ways so they can keep those jobs, build their skills, and often turn those jobs into careers. ABC does not create work – we find it for our job seekers through mutually beneficial partnerships with businesses of all types.

Over the past 40 years or so, society’s approach to supporting employment for people with disabilities has shifted from a “sheltered workshop” model to one more focused on community-based work options. Therefore, the majority of the individuals who work at ABC don’t work in-center at all, but rather at various job sites in the community. Our participants are currently employed by over 50 businesses in Rochester, in an array of tasks. We are always seeking to increase that variety!

The population ABC serves has always faced significant barriers to employment, and they continue to face barriers. However, the conditions for these people to successfully earn an income, pay taxes on that income, and spend their money in Rochester are better than they’ve ever been. With ongoing vocational support and direction from ABC’s committed staff, along with financial assistance from government sources and other public and private funding sources, many people who were once thought to be “too disabled to work” are able to succeed at regular jobs.
