Arc Broward is an organization that has been assisting people with disabilities for over 40 years. A primary emphasis has been to give job-seeking individuals a better opportunity to find a long-term career rather than a part-time job. This is no easy objective. The Florida Chamber Foundation reported that 63 percent of people with disabilities are not active in the workforce. The obstacles may be high, but many of these barriers are in the minds of potential employers and not in the hard work of the disabled.
