Programs:

Disability Employee Mentoring: In this program, Enable America improves employment opportunities for people with disabilities by matching them with employers who are working to improve their workplace. "Mentees" spend a day working with an employee "mentor," gaining valuable workplace that is often more difficult for them to find. Mentees also they make important connections that can help further their careers. The experience also helps businesses build a more diverse and inclusive workforce that values and respects everyone.
 
Community Connection and Business to Business Meetings: These forums bring local leaders, lawmakers, employers and service providers together to learn and share success stories. These meetings are an important step in building a bridge between those with disabilities, and their community.
 
 
VetConnect: Dedicated to helping wounded warriors re-acclimate to civilian life or return to active duty, VetConnect enhances existing rehabilitation programs for wounded veterans and actively engages local civic, business, and community leaders in the reorientation of wounded warriors to their communities. The program improves the recovery outcome of wounded warriors by pairing them with similarly wounded peer mentors who have completed or are completing the recovery process.
 
Team Enable: Team Enable is designed to organize people with disabilities and other community members through training groups and sports activities. The program was launched in April 2009 when Team Enable fielded a team at the St. Anthony’s Triathlon. The team included two participants who were blind: Richard Salem, who competing in biking while riding a tandem bike with Air Force General Robert Holmes, and U.S. Army Special Forces Captain Ivan Castro, who ran in the 10K with assistance from running partner Scott Heintz.
