In the United States, approximately 1 in 5 people identify as having a disability. The biggest challenge facing a young person with a disability is not their disability itself, but the fact that 70% of people with disabilities are unemployed, barring them from economic opportunity and forcing them to live at or below the poverty line.

 

The ArtWorks program is a social enterprise, built to support young adults with disabilities as they transition from high school to adulthood. ArtWorks provides employable job skills, community resources, and economic opportunity for all our artists.
