    Disability Chamber of Commerce

    Recently read a newspaper piece about the Persons With Disabilities Chamber of Commerce. It was founded by an Orlando attorney whose 2 sons have autism. They have a great web site, www.disabilitychamber.org which recommend to all PWDs, especially those who have a desire to start their own businesses.

    This is such a great concept and long overdue. Through this organization PWDs can be in the forefront of commercialism and thus gain greater inclusion in all things that matter to us.

    Job, Nah...SSI, Oh Yes!

    It's disappointing to see that more CC members are interested in receiving and protecting tax payer provided SSI money than in working and creating wealth.

    My orginal post on the Disability Chamber of Commerce has received zero comments as did the post of National Disability Awareness Work Week. Much chatter is generated about he dearth of jobs available to PWDs, but strangely quiet when it comes to posts that actually aim to provided meaningful work and opportunities to become self sufficient.
