CAREER FOCUS INC
Career Focus Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Since 2013, Career Focus Inc. has worked with individuals to find and maintain jobs within the community. Our mission is to help a diverse group of people (including persons with disabilities, veterans, and Youth in Transition) find jobs of their choosing. Jobs are targeted to an individual’s abilities, health status, and goals. We provide programs and services to help everyone enhance their strengths and overcome their weaknesses. While our focus is to provide quality employment opportunities for persons with disabilities, we believe everyone (with or without a disability) is equally entitled to significant and sustainable employment. To date, we have helped over one thousand people with disabilities in our community.
Our ability to reach unity in diversity will be the beauty and the test of our civilisation
– Mahatma Gandhi
