"As the nation's unemployment rate remains high, we've seen even greater need to assist people with disabilities, including veterans and wounded warriors"

Despite a challenging job market, Enable America expanded its outreach in 2010, launching new programs and services, while assisting more people with disabilities than in any previous year.

Enable America is ending 2010 with more accomplishments than ever before in its history as an organization devoted to improving employment opportunities for people with disabilities. The nonprofit is looking ahead to even more success in the new year.

"As the nation's unemployment rate remains high, we've seen even greater need to assist people with disabilities, including veterans and wounded warriors," said Richard Salem, founder and CEO of Enable America. "Fortunately this year, we've been able to respond with our most widespread series of programs and services ever. Enable America is in the right place, at the right time, to help those who truly deserve a hand up."

In 2010 Enable America assisted more people, while working with more partner organizations and social service providers, than in any previous year.

Among this year's accomplishments:

"We are not only proud of what we've accomplished, but also of the foundation we've laid for our progress in the days ahead," said Enable America Executive Director Steve LaBour. "There is no reason 2011 will not be an even bigger year as we grow our programs, assisting more people in need of our services.

Enable America is now gearing up for next year, allocating its resources and planning programs that will ensure it assists as many people with disabilities, disabled veterans, and wounded warriors as its budget allows. Those who want to contribute to the program's outreach are encouraged to log on to EnableAmerica.org for information on how to make a tax deductible contribution.

"We could not have accomplished all that we did without the support of individuals, social service organizations, and our corporate sponsors," LaBour said. "That continued support is critical as we build for the future."

Enable America was established in 2002 by attorney Richard Salem as a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people with disabilities find employment and live independently. The organization's Community Connections, Business Connections, and VetConnect programs unite members of the disability community and business community to raise awareness and increase employment opportunities for the 54 million Americans with disabilities, including our nation's wounded warriors. More information can be found on the organization's web site, EnableAmerica.org
