Pittsburgh Disability Employment Project for Freedom

Hiring people with disabilities is good business.

The Mission of the Pittsburgh Disability Employment Project for Freedom is to provide a business directed training resulting in competitive employment for people with disabilities.

The program is a business driven education-to-work program that departs from conventional training programs by reversing the typical model and focusing on the human resource needs of the business community, and then providing a matching training program to prepare candidates to fill these needs.
