Our Mission:

To assist individuals with disabilities to gain and to sustain employment.

Our Vision:

To be a significant force for the employment of individuals with disabilities until the need no longer exists.

Since 1978, we have done this by responding to emerging social, cultural, and economic needs and opportunities with programs and services that support our job seeking clients as well as our corporate partners.

Our clients represent a diverse spectrum of abilities and disabilities—and we are committed to serving each one with services, programs, and support uniquely tailored to their needs.

Since our founding, we have successfully assisted thousands of individuals with disabilities to secure jobs appropriate to their qualifications and career goals. Project HIRED offers an array of job placement, training, and employment services designed to promote self sufficiency and independence, remove barriers, create opportunities, and help job seekers with disabilities build successful careers.

As both part of its outreach activities and to support the expansion of its services for job seekers, Project HIRED also offers a portfolio of professional programs designed for employers that include an enterprise-grade job board, as well as  staffing, recruiting, and consulting services. And in addition to these services which assist our business partners with their employee education, talent recruitment, and operational needs, Project HIRED also directly employs individuals with significant disabilities who would otherwise be unable to sustain competitive employment through the AbilityOne program, founded in 1994 and expanded in 2003 to secure and fulfill government contracts.

Our headquarters in San Jose, California put us at the heart of the ever changing and active high tech sector—which creates amazing job opportunities for our clients and corporate partnership opportunities for our organization.

Our history is extensive, spanning four decades and the careers of thousands of clients. And, with the continued support of our generous volunteers, donors, and partners, we look forward to continuing to our commitment to our clients and our community.
