Employer Partnerships

Partner with The de Moya Foundation and inspire our community to open its doors and demonstrate the capabilities of young adults with developmental disabilities!

Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities are the largest minority group in the U.S. with the highest unemployment rate despite their ability to be valuable assets.

Our unique approach builds on creating effective, communicative relationships with Employer Partners to reduce the perceived obstacles of hiring individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities by providing the guidance and tools needed to drive positive change in our community.

Together we can bridge the path to a brighter future, advance the disability employment movement, ensure greater outcomes and success for your business, for the employees, and enhance financial growth in our community.

Support for Employers and Employees

We use a model of on-going support for both the employer and employee to foster a platform that will encourage long-term, meaningful employment for young adults. This model aligns with the evidence-based practice of Customized Employment (CE), which is an employment strategy that matches the unique skills, and interests of an individual with the specific needs of the employer.
