New Website Aims To Help Indiana’s Disabled Find Jobs

Fifth Freedom created to help both employers and disabled workers find the right employment matches.

A nonprofit to help the disabled is launching an online job board for Hoosiers with disabilities. Fifth Freedom has created to post openings from employers who are actively looking for workers with disabilities.

Executive director Sheri Caveda says four employers have signed up to post so far and says her organization is advertising to attract more. Fifth Freedom hopes to expand its reach through federal contractors, who have a federally-mandated target of hiring the disabled for at least seven percent of their jobs. The site will have a built-in audience of the 17,000 people already on Fifth Freedom‘s mailing list.
