People with Disabilities a Boon to Workforce

By: Dennis Haas and Julie Price
Date: August 2, 2017
According to an Income and Poverty analysis in the United States, working-age people with disabilities are more than twice as likely to be living in poverty as those without disabilities. The 2017 ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) Report, distributed by United Way, indicates that 44 percent of households in Florida cannot afford basic needs including housing, child-care, food, health care, and transportation. This suggests a staggering 90 percent of Floridians with disabilities experience the same hardships and persistent struggle adding in social and emotional issues.

In 1968, when Pedro and Miguel were born, their family had a double surprise - that they were twins and boys! Then, several hours later, they received word from the doctor that their twin boys had Down syndrome.
