Our Mission, Vision and Values
One in five Americans has a disability. And disabilities don’t discriminate. They can be acquired at birth or at any point through injury or illness. Despite their prevalence, more than two-thirds of working age Americans with disabilities are unemployed — many not by choice.
At PRIDE, we provide the support, training and opportunity necessary to help people with disabilities find meaningful employment and become contributing members of their communities. When we succeed, everyone benefits.
To create jobs for people with disabilities.
To be the premier employer of people with disabilities; the vendor of choice in the markets we serve; and the recognized leader in meeting the needs of individuals in overcoming barriers to employment.
Mission: Creating meaningful jobs for people with disabilities while operating our business profitably.
People: Working together, in a culture where we respect, value, and appreciate all differences, we create a challenging and rewarding environment energized by the knowledge that our efforts make a positive difference in the community and the world.
Customer: Our customers – partners in our mission – look to us for quality, responsiveness and value. We are committed to their complete satisfaction.
Culture: Our success comes from the PRIDE way of doing business, characterized by entrepreneurship, integrity, passion, innovation, continuous improvement, safety, social responsibility, environmental stewardship, and a touch of zaniness.
