Disability Resources

  • Operation Engage America

    Let's start putting those organizations together with America now. Let's engage America in the process. Operation Engage America (OEA) is on a mission: to offer support, awareness, education and resources to veterans and others living with Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), their families and the communities that support them. Our goal is to have a grassroots event every June (PTSD Awareness month) in as many communities across America as possible.
  • Personal Finance Guide for People with Disabilities

    The 2004 study, “Disabled People's Costs of Living,” found that disabled people have higher expenses in almost every aspect of life—from food to medical care to utilities—and have additional costs due to their disabilities. And yet, the U.S. Census Bureau found that adults age 21 – 64 with disabilities made almost $800 less each month than those with no disability. Due to these financial constraints, it is essential for people with disabilities to have the personal finance skills that will help them manage their money so that they can live fulfilling lives.
  • Travel Tips for Workers with Disabilities

    Six million Americans face more than inconvenience when they travel for work. For employees with disabilities, business travel can be dangerous, humiliating, expensive -- even impossible. With perseverance and planning, some of these hurdles can be overcome.
