Access Means Business

At LINC, access literally means business. The ability to hire employees with disabilities can strengthen and diversify Idaho businesses. For individuals with disabilities, the ability to secure and maintain employment can mean greater access to opportunities and a higher quality of life. Most important, it means being able to live independently in your own home and community. The economic impact of disability is real. As individuals with disabilities, we travel, shop, and recreate with friends, family, and coworkers. In the US alone, adults with disabilities have a total disposable income of $490 billion. Globally, that's $1.9 trillion.
