Jim L.

Work should be more than just a paycheck. Work is a place where you can find your community. It’s where you interact with people all day. And it’s a place where you enjoy yourself.

—Jim, a sound designer


Your future is open. Although people with disabilities often face barriers moving into the world of work, many do succeed. Many discover exciting jobs inspired by their interests and abilities.

Each month Open Futures will introduce you to three people with disabilities who believed in themselves and followed their dreams. Open Futures will also lead you to resources that will help you open up your future.
