What We Do
The Mission of BUILD is to serve employers/businesses and people with disabilities to create a community that is the model of inclusion and diversity; working closely with community agencies that serve and work toward the inclusion of people with disabilities. The primary goal for BUILD is to establish a permanent governance structure in the City of El Paso (and surrounding communities) that drives awareness and attention to issues of full access and attitudinal acceptance for all persons, with and without disabilities.
To provide expertise and guidance to the City of El Paso and surrounding communities regarding Disability Awareness issues that promote Inclusion and Diversity in the community, and to serve as a facilitator for employment opportunities and/or the environmental workplace accommodation of people with disabilities.
EP BUILD will bring added value to the City of El Paso, TX and surrounding communities, by supplementing or providing Disability Awareness and Inclusion / Sensitivity training to local businesses. In turn, local businesses/employers will find value in acquiring talent from a labor-capable, yet vastly under-utilized population of job candidates with disabilities that are ready, able and willing to work.
