Despite the positive contributions to America’s workforce – lower turnover and absenteeism – finding jobs for people with disabilities can be difficult. Once they graduate high school, they immediately lose access to their friends, a routine, and employment possibilities. Debbie Horn, Founder and Executive Director of PawsAbilities, started the social enterprise out of concern for her son Matthew who was born with Down Syndrome. She wanted to explore options that would give Matthew a more independent life filled with purpose and hope. PawsAbilities’ young adults handcraft all natural dog treats, sew dog bandanas, and upcycle t-shirts into pull toys. The students also work in their retail and mobile stores, learning customer service skills for future jobs. They are a community bolstered by the strengths, passions, talents, and a strong work ethic to the people they serve.
