Hi. I'm Laurel Rossi and I co founded a non profit called Creative Spirit, https://www.creativespriti-us.org, devoted to matching individuals with intellectual, developmental and learning disabilities with employment opportunities at the best companies in the world. Those with intellectual disabilities are UNemployed at an astounding 85%. 1 out of 5 families are involved in the care of an individual with IDD. Employment provides independence a real life and unlimited possibilities for those with disabilities. Women are the core caregivers and often forego careers, social lives and even their own health for their entire lifetimes without independence for those in their care.
Our goal is to employ more than 130,000 individuals by 2020. We have launched a very successful pilot program and we are well on our way to to mass market success. But we need funding to take on a most ambitious, but very do-able project--technology that will expertly match individuals with companies.
First, I want to offer to the community any assistance in guiding a young adult/adult with IDD. If you know anyone seeking a position please have them send a resume to: [email protected].
Second, We are seekng investors to participate in the funding of our AI led technology that will drive successful matching. This will be a B Corp that we believe will build a sustainable profit stream for Creative Spirit and its investors. Interested individuals or leads to investors? Email us at: [email protected].
