Your support of BDI makes a difference in the lives of people who have a disability and are eager to work. In 2015, your gift helped more than 1,000 people gain employment support, connected 162 people with jobs, and helped BDI create and sustain jobs for 256 people with disabilities within our own social enterprises.
"BDI helps people get back on their feet and back to self-sufficiency."
Former BDI client, Carol Brunie
After a car accident, Carol sustained severe injuries that prevented her from working for nearly ten years. When Carol was ready to return to work, she couldn't find a job due to her long absence from the workforce.
Then Carol came to BDI, where she gained new skills and received help searching for a job, including a new resume, coaching, and interview practice. Most importantly, BDI connected her with businesses seeking employees like her. Today, Carol works as a call center agent in one of BDI's social enterprises.
Your gift this year in any amount will help many others, still pursuing their goals, to secure jobs and prosper. You can direct your gift to the program of your choice by making an online gift or by using the BDI donation form.
