This February 2015 FPN member webinar presented key findings from the 2014 United Way ALICE Report for Florida including the increase in the basic cost of living, the decrease in the availability of jobs that can support household necessities, and the shortage of housing that the majority of the state's jobs can afford. During the webinar the presenters shared how the data is being used by United Ways across Florida since the report's release in November 2014, and how FPN members can use the data to further philanthropic work in Florida.
The report shows an employment rate of only 30% for people with disabilities (PWD), ages 16 – 65. Importantly, the research revealed a wide variation of the employment rate from county to county for people with disabilities. This was not true for workers without disabilities. The research was funded by a grant from The Able Trust, to obtain a benchmark employment rate for those they serve, as a primary gauge of the success of programs that The Able Trust funds, and as a measure of the outcomes of the combination of services offered through private and public organizations in the state to increase employment opportunities and actual employment for Floridians with disabilities.
