The Raise Hope Foundation Career Training program is based at Rutgers Business School. According to the National Governor’s Association, the U.S. spends about $300 billion annually to support unemployed workers with disabilities, while 67 percent of working-age people with disabilities would rather have a job than be unemployed and unproductive. This program supports the NGA’s mission to promote employment for people with disabilities.
