Information for family members and caregivers

PRIDE Industries was founded by people just like you – individuals who wanted their adult children with disabilities to be connected to their communities through meaningful work, resulting in greater independence and self-reliance. Today, PRIDE is one of the nation’s largest nonprofit employers and service providers of people with disabilities helping individuals with diverse disabilities overcome obstacles.

If you are concerned about the future of someone close to you with an intellectual or developmental disability, sensory or physical disability, or mental health challenge – PRIDE can help. We can connect you to the support, information and resources you need to care for your family member through their lifetime and yours.

As PRIDE’s supports are generally subscription-based, one of the first questions we will explore is whether your family member has qualified for supports through a California-based Regional Center (supports for individuals with developmental disabilities under the Lanterman Act) or a state Department of Rehabilitation (state supported short-term services for qualified individuals to advance employment success).

At PRIDE, we know that disability does not mean inability, and that employment builds confidence, self-reliance and dignity. For more than 50 years, PRIDE Industries has been successfully preparing people with disabilities for employment and more independent lives. We designed our service continuum to meet each individual’s needs and interests, providing assessments, career planning, training, placement, on-the-job support, follow-up and case management. Over time, we have expanded our proven expertise and programs to assist others overcoming challenges to skills development, employment, or successful community integration.

Our vocational rehabilitation services adhere to professional and ethical standards established by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), California Department of Rehabilitation and California Department of Developmental Services.

We invite you to explore our services, or connect to our referral expert for more information.

Thank you for your interest in PRIDE Industries.
