Enable America, a non-profit group working to improve employment opportunities for people with disabilities, honored more than two dozen North Carolina businesses and social service organizations for their support of that mission, in a recent awards ceremony at the North Carolina Governor’s Mansion.

“Your dedication to assisting people with disabilities, giving them a hand up, not a hand out, is crucial to our efforts,” said Richard Salem, founder and CEO of Enable America, who has strong ties to the Tar Heel state as a native of New Bern and graduate of Duke University Law School. “We are grateful to the support of Governor Perdue and First Gentleman Bob Eaves in opening this beautiful home for us today, and to each of you for the work you do on behalf of people with disabilities, disabled veterans, and wounded warriors.”
