Creating Job Opportunities for People With Significant Disabilities
Known as the AbilityOne Program, the Javits- Wagner-O'Day Act was federally enacted to provide diverse employment opportunities for people who are blind or have other significant disabilities on product and service contracts.
- Goodwill affords AbilityOne federal customers a wide array of quality services and products, while providing jobs for people with significant disabilities, many who lived below the poverty line and were previously unemployable.
- Goodwill salutes the AbilityOne Commission, SourceAmerica, and our Federal customers for excellent jobs in Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe counties that truly employ people with significant disabilities. Abilityone.gov
SourceAmerica is rooted in AbilityOne. The Federal AbilityOne Program provides employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities, and SourceAmerica was established in 1974 to facilitate the program.
- SourceAmerica links Federal procurement customers with nonprofits that supply AbilityOne products and services, providing contract management and support along the way.
- America’s community-based nonprofits constantly fight for a more inclusive workplace. These well-managed nonprofits are dedicated to training and employing workers with significant disabilities, and SourceAmerica provides resources to support them in their mission. By joining the SourceAmerica network, our nonprofit partners are able to compete for contracts held by government and commercial customers. Sourceamerica.org
