Blog – Advancing Equity: A Financial Toolkit for Individuals with Disabilities

“While I sometimes felt alone, the truth is that many job-seekers with disabilities seek answers to the same questions. The toolkit is a figurative Swiss army knife — a multifaceted tool that helps individuals with disabilities carve a career and financial independence roadmap.”

– Edward Mitchell, independent living specialist, outreach coordinator and Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) ambassador for National Disability Institute

In 2003, Edward Mitchell experienced an incomplete spinal-cord injury during a hit-and-run bicycle accident, resulting in a diagnosis of quadriplegia. In the blog, “Advancing Equity: A Financial Toolkit for Individuals with Disabilities,” Edward discusses his employment journey and why calling attention to the U.S. Department of Labor resource, Secure Your Financial Future: A Financial Toolkit for People with Disabilities,  is part of his commitment to helping others with disabilities achieve their dreams.
