84% of adults with developmental disabilities do not have a paid job in the community. Shalonda used to be a part of that 84%, until she joined the Best Buddies Jobs program.
Sometimes a job is more than just a job. Companies like Seyfarth Shaw benefit immensely when hiring skilled employees like Shalonda. Will you join our movement?

The Best Buddies Jobs program represents one of our organization’s three key mission pillars, Integrated Employment. This program secures jobs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), allowing them to earn an income, pay taxes, and continuously and independently support themselves.
The Jobs program places focus beyond the typical jobs in which a person with IDD might be placed. Best Buddies focuses on white collar jobs such as: receptionists, mailroom assistants, file clerks, office assistants and retail associates.
