46 Companies That Hire People With Special Needs

companies that hire people with special needs

Before I became the dad of a child with Down syndrome I didn’t pay much attention to companies that hired people with special needs. However, I do now.

recently posted an article about a young man with disabilities I noticed working at my local car dealership. I also wrote about an experience I had meeting a young lady with Down syndrome at a Chick-Fil-A changed my idea of “meaningful” work.

As a parent of a child with special needs, specifically Down syndrome, I’m always encouraged when I see employers hiring people with special needs. Our son Noah is only ten years old at the time of this blog post, but as a father I have high hopes that my son will one day be able to use his gifts, talents, experience and passions in a job that allows him to make a contribution to his community. I have been so encouraged to “work” with him at our non-profit, Hope Story, and if wants to, I dream about a day he can move into full time employment with our organization.

companies that hire special needs

I’ve seen several articles online about companies that hire people with Down syndrome / special needs but I wasn’t able to locate a master list if so I thought I would put one together. I will continue to add to this list over time as I become of aware of other companies / organizations that hire people with special needs. If you are looking for a company that hired people with special needs these are some companies that you can contact.

About Rick Smith

Hi, I'm Noah's Dad and I'm passionate about giving the world a window into our life as we raise our son who was born with Down syndrome. I also enjoy connecting with other families, so let's stay connected.


  1. Robin Tecza says

    My son is a 32 year old with ds. He has worked at Delta Sonic car was for 10 years. He loves them and considers them his best friends. They truly are family to him and deal with his up and down moods so well.

    • Mrs. Evelyne Fallah says

      Thanks for sharing this.

      • Mrs. Evelyne Fallah says

        We have a kid that has DS…at first we couldn’t stop asking God why us? But we were glad to hear the story about Noah. Noah’s story has help us a lot in bringing up our only son who is a DS.
        Thanks a lot..

  2. Jodi Dolbel says

    You have probably had lots of comments but I just thought I would share an experience. I did some work experience as school kid at a School for special needs children. There was one young man there (a student) and he used to spend all his time in the kitchen. He would prepare all kinds of food for everyone, that’s all he did. He didn’t participate in games or anything else, just prepared and served food. What this kid did was incredible. He made some amazing dishes. Food was his thing, I’d imagine with a partner seeing him own his own coffee shop and not bother with employers. I don’t know what become of him, but his skills certainly impressed me. It doesn’t matter what our needs are, we all have gifts. If we can put a roof over our head using our gifts how blessed are we! Encourage Noah’s gifts as he grows, you never know where it can take him. I’m not special needs as such but always did have learning problems. My outlet was being creative, making things. I now own my own shop making things for people. It’s in the main area of town. No boss, just me, a hot glue gun and a tank of helium.

    • Brandi Edinger says

      I stumbled into this post and it must not be by accident. I am a Pastry Chef currently trying to revive a piece of Marylands history and repurposing a historical structure as a coffee/pastry shop. One of my goals is to employ people with special needs as well as offer classes/lessons in which they can be hands on. I find it to be very therapeutic.
      Thank you for this post as it solidifies everything for me.

  3. Rick,

    I do not have children of my own but really enjoy reading your posts about Noah! You and your wife are so blessed to have such a wonderful son! Other companies I have noticed that hire people with Special Needs: Kroger, Market Street, Tom Thumb, and Albertsons. I enjoy going to these stores for that reason! Have a great day!!!

  4. Kenzie Deel says

    Panera Bread! Specifically the one in Eden Prairie,MN. They have two special needs men working there, one with Down syndrome. My son who also has Down syndrome is 3 and we have no worries that he will be able to find a job here in the Minneapolis,MN area when he is of working age. We support Panera Bread 100% for that reason 🙂
    Thanks for your posts- look forward to them!

  5. Thank you so much for sharing this!

  6. Walgreens has a great program in their distribution centers for people with special needs. We live within a few miles of one of their distribution centers. http://www.walgreens.com/topic/sr/disability_inclusion_home.jsp

  7. Im not sure about USA, but in Denmark ( where I’m from) IKEA hires people with special needs, including Down’s syndrome, in the stores. They have a programme where they are employed to fulfill special tasks like helping out at the storage area, stocking up ect.
    Maybe they have a similar programme at IKEA in the US too?

  8. Market Street, one of our local DFW stores. We have met two new friends there. Last time I took my son, one of the managers said maybe someday he will work there.

  9. Dominic Huber says

    I used to work alongside a bagger with Down Syndrome named Tyler Crose at Schnucks. He worked for them for many years. He doesn’t work there anymore because he moved back home to Florida, but we still miss him working with us and the joy he brought to us. He still calls us every Monday to see how we are doing and I love seeing his updates on Facebook. I miss seeing him in person because he was one of a kind and he inspired me to not be afraid of who I am.

  10. Andrea Reyes says

    Thank you so much. My son is only 1 but it gives me hope for his future.

  11. Columbia Industries in Washington State

  12. Hi Noah’s dad. I work for an agency that provides a multitude of services for individuals with developmental disabilities.

  18. Always on the lookout too! SuperLo foods (in Memphis–not sure if they are only local?) also hires people with special needs. Thanks for this list!

  25. Kwik Trip convenience stores in Wisconsin!

  26. Paula Hilston says

    Two large grocery chains in New England regularly employ people with special needs including Down Syndrome. Stop and Shop was previously mentioned and Shaws. A smaller grocery chain in this area which is family run, Market Basket, also employs people with special needs and is often praised by their employees as being a great place to work.

    Love to you and your family.

  27. Heidi Thorpe says

    Cameron’s Coffee and Chocolates, Fairfax, VA and Wildflour Catering, Chantilly, VA.

  28. Walgreens has a corporate program to hire people with special needs with great success.

  29. I know that our local (Indianapolis, IN) Fazoli’s does as well as Meijer Superstores.

  30. There are several on Cape Cod: Stop and Shop, KMart, Tedeschi’s, Dunkin Donuts, Centerville Pie Co., Whole Foods, Cooke’s Seafood, Cape Abilities Farm, Mc Donald’s and I know there are many more.

  39. My son is high functioning autistic and teaches swim at the Y . 1st he learned to not be afraid of the water as a young child there and grew up with the aquatics program and decided he wanted to teach other kids to not be afraid. He gets so excited when a parent tells him their child is on the spectrum. Our YMCA has had other special needs staff or volunteers in the past as well.

  40. Hi Rick, I have a daughter who is 27 and is on the Spectrum. She too is higher functioning. She works two part time jobs for Pizza Ranch and Panera Bread. She aksovattends an arts class one day a week in the crossroads district of KC. I loved it when I came across your website. I also have a 501C3 organization that is currently under development to assist in academics and life skills for those with special needs ages 22-25. I also want to integrate a couple of businesses as separate entities off the school to offer employment opportunities as well. My goal is to reach all 50 states. The name of the organization is Desire 2 Learn, Inc. Thank you for this website and sharing your story.

  41. Here in Moses Lake, WA our son Ben, 22 with DS, is employed along with over 20 others with special needs at Safeway. Our local JoAnn Fabrics also hires people with special needs.

  42. You forgot about Stride, Inc. in Albuquerque, NM! 50% of our employees are special needs and we have been hiring adults with intellectual delays for 35 years!! To top it off, two of our special needs employees have been with us since Day 1 🙂 – Marie (Developmentally Delayed) and Peter (Autism Spectrum) still come in to work everyday and are valued members of our team. We have the best people in the world working @ Stride.


  43. missbeedc says

    I live in Maryland near Washington DC and I know both Marshalls and TJ Maxx hire adults with special needs and they are employed among many roles in the store.

  44. Growing up, our Food Lion employed a guy with Down syndrome. He always talked to my mom (who teaches children with special needs) when we were in there, and I always wondered if he appreciated the fact that she treated him like any other employee – with respect and kindness.

  45. Lisa Olson says

    I love this, I am actually a job developer that specializes in finding employment opportunities for individuals with different abilities. It is amazing how many companies are out there supporting people

  46. How would you go about letting the employer know your child has special needs? My son is 18 and looking for his fist job, he is Autistic and I don’t even know where to start

  47. Hello Mr. Smith
    I am a Director of Supported Employment for an organization in Pennsylvania. I have worked in this area for 19 years and appreciated you list. It is encouraging to see so many people sharing the names of employers that hire individuals with disabilities. I have a few more to add to your list if you wish. We have worked with Staples, CVS, AMC Theaters, Petsmart, Burger King, Giant, Weis and Taco Bell. Thank you for taking the time to create the list and inspire this discussion. Bless you and your family.

  48. My son is 20 with Asperger, ADD and learning disabilities, i pushed through high school and college he graduated both but it is hard for him because where he got a job to me its like he gets picked on so he tries to go faster and gets hurt every time. He is afraid if anyone finds out they will send him home and loose his job. We are in Philadelphia. If anyone knows of any restaurants hiring that will work with him this would be great. He graduated from a culinary school and is smart given then chance. I am also willing to move with in reason to help him. if anyone has any info

    • I’m not sure what you consider within reason, but a young man with down syndrome, who lives in VA (or maybe W. VA), opened his own restaurant. His father and brother help run it and the young man greets, serves, and hugs each customer. Maybe this would inspire. Look it up. Good luck and God bless!

  49. Halfmoon Works in Clifton Park NY hires those on the autism spectrum.


  51. Bright rose says

    Hi, I’m someone that just loves what you are all trying to do, I think over all it would be amazing to have lists like this for everyone with a Disability or handicap to get a look at as so many parents lose hope or don’t get a look at the amazing things going on in the world.

    I lost my vision in my late teens, and before that I was a care giver, I know what you are doing is helping so many people and I just wanted to say that XD

  52. Target you should take off because they told me that they would not hire me because of my disability and you need to Add Best Buy and CD Warehouse

  53. Karen Mezatasta says

    Love this site! My daughter is epileptic and has cerebral palsy. Does anyone know of any employers in the Cleveland, OH area? She is 18.

  54. Thank you for the post. I work in Utah with adults with disabilities and this is great information. I also loved reading the positive comments. 🙂

  55. Kumush Atayeva says

    Dear Rick,

    Thank you so much for the blog. This is so helpful and I have learned a lot on this.

    I am a masters degree student in the University of Greenwich in UK. My majors is in International Human Resources Management.

    Presently I am looking for companies which employ disabled people for my thesis.

    The purpose of this research is to introduce findings on implementation and adaptation of HR management approaches and strategies towards the employees with disabilities. Within the background findings, a goal of this research proposal is to perform a case study based in the company which employs disabled people.  This paper will trace organization’s business strategy for recruiting, hiring and retaining people with disabilities.

    The question which motivated this study was the HR strategies adapted in managing disabled employees. This research is providing a good example and food to think for managers who are planning to apply a disability inclusion approach within their companies. Selecting a case study to examine the HR approaches in one company brings limitations in suitability of reliability and validity (of the outcomes) because the economics and business setting is always advancing and developing. It is great to know that large and small companies are out there trying to break down these obstacles.

    I am sure this will be an interesting project for many companies to participate in and the list that you have prepared is very helpful. Thank you for this.
    I am contacting companies from the list and plus the posts of other people are very helpful too.

    If there are any suggestions which all of you people could give me would be fantastic.

    Kind regards,


  56. Michelle Finn says

    Roth’s Fresh Markets near me not only hire kids with Developmental and physical disabilities but they encourage and support them as well. My son is a high-functioning autistic child with ocpd as well as many physical disabilities including multiple spinal and leg surgeries. Roths has offered to let him work there as an intern once he is ready. This company forever has my business!

  57. Brookshires in Texas also hires those with disabilities. They are an amazing company. I love that you have done this page.

  58. Susanfranks (mum) says

    Morrisons are amazing . My daughter is special needs . They were the only super market cafe to give her a chance , 15 years ago . M&S were not interested ,Debenhams were not . Unfortunately she now would like a change . I have no idea where to start .

  59. Applebees has employed several students with disabilities at my high school after they graduate. They work there for an internship through the school system before they graduate. As a teacher of students with autism, I’m on the lookout for other businesses that have a history of hiring people with disabilities. Obviously not all students will have the same interests or abilities, so the more options we have for them the better.

  60. hello i am krissy with a developmental delay and i have applied at Kroger st francis animal hospital Petco and target and have been discriminated everytime because of mt disability

    • Keep trying! Maybe get some volunteering under your belt for your resume. Someone will see your talents and hire you. Try not to be resentful; a lot of folks don’t get hired. If you have a legal case, pursue it with help from Legal Aid. I hope by now you have found your dream job!

  61. Safeway & Lucky’s

  62. Rising Tide car washes in Florida employs individuals on the Autism Spectrum.

  63. Sandra Manning says

    Looking for employment special needs for my daughter she can
    rolls silverware any places in Corpus Christi Texas.

  64. Oh really? McDonald’s is hiring people with disabilities? Please show me proof that they hire people with mental disabilities. You provide a link to their website, but I don’t see any proof of it.

  65. Target!! In my 10 years there they have hired at least 20 individuals with varying disabilities/special needs. They have also used models with special needs in their weekly advertisements multiple times

  66. I know I’m a little late, but Hugs and Mugs Cafe is run by adults with Down syndrome. I’m not sure if you’ve ever heard of GiGi’s Playhouse (gigisplayhouse.org) but the cate was started by the same lady because of GiGi’s.

  67. Albertson’s, Dairy Queen, Starbucks, City Market, County Senior Center, various small businesses in Durango CO. Our town is on the better side of inclusion, but we still have a long way to go.

  68. Hello,
    As a Transitional Job Coach at a high school in MA, I am happy to read about national brand stores that hire PWD’s. We are always seeking out business partners who will work with us and with hopes that that the ultimate goal of getting hired is reached! Also, in Peabody, MA, there is a cafe called Breaking Grounds ( https://ne-arc.org/northeast-arcs-breaking-grounds-cafe-now-open/ ) which is solely run by the Northeast ARC! Wonderful cafe! Stay strong, my friends!

  69. Linda Flynn says

    My family recently moved to Henderson, NV. Our son is 31 with CP and is hearing impaired. He drives and attends a local college here. He has lived on his own, but is home and needs a job. He has applied to several companies on the list above, but does not get any response to his applications. What can he do to get someone to take a chance on him?

  70. Please add South Fork Bakery in Sag Harbor, N.Y. to your list of businesses that employ adults with special needs. South Fork Bakery was founded in 2016 and currently employs 15 local adults with a variety of challenges. Thank you for putting together this list!

  71. Linda Matthews says

    I live near a soup kitchen and ride the bus so I frequently converse with the homeless. It has been my experience that many of the homeless have undiagnosed learning disabilities and developmental delays which has a lot to do with why they are homeless. Please consider the homeless and people of all ages for such programs as they all want to work. They are a perfect example of what has happened to people before such things were recognized. Thank you.

  72. My daughter, Abigail, was in a Disney commercial advertising Disney World.
    Duffy’s restaurant is also a great supporter of hiring people with disabilities.

  73. Leah Spence says

    Jean at Coborn’s in Elk River, Minnesota is amazing and truly wants to give PWD a chance.
    As a parent I spoke with her on a real life fact finding mission. They had a HELP WANTED sign out and I was trying to figure out if my son should try to explain himself in interviews and if that would be beneficial or detrimental (as he isn’t always the best at reading social situations). She asked me if I would encourage him to apply there as she would love to hire someone who wants to work.

  74. Over here in Denver, two small businesses are based around the concept of independent employment for adults with disabilities: Blue star recyclers, and the brewery, Brewability.

  75. Hi my name is Karyn. I have a 33 yr old son who has been working for Publix supermarket for 12 years. He has autism and the problem I have is that he was accused of harassing a Co worker at work by wanting to give her a card. He is a affectionate person to anyone. Can anyone please tell me why the staff did not discuss his autism with his coworkers. As of now he got written up and is about to lose his job. I had to explain to him that everyone is not gonna be affectionate in the way that thinks they should be. He knows now not to over step bounded is that may make people uncomfortable. There are still things he does not understand. I would appreciate if someone could suggest somewhere else he can work if he loses this job over something that should have been discussed before he got hired. He is afraid of getting fired. He feels like he has done something really really bad. Thank you.

  76. Eric Reisman says

    Noah’s Dad, you ROCK! I am a Special Educator in Columbia, MD and I am collecting names of businesses that are run by people with disabilities. I just did a search and your list came up, which I am grateful for. Do you know if there has ever been a convention for all of these businesses? One of my dreams is to compile a list like yours and then to bring all of these people together.

    One of my favorite places is The Prospector Theater in Ridgefield, CT. That is MY dream job as I am a major movie buff. Check them out: http://www.prospectortheater.org/

    Rick, thank you for what you are doing!

  77. We’ve had trouble with Home Depot. My brother is 18 and developmentally delayed (not Down syndrome) but his teacher got him a job at Home Depot because they start working while they’re in school as part of the special ed program. The person at Home Depot agreed to hire him, and then didn’t respond to the teacher when she followed up. When the teacher went to the store, her contact there refused to even meet with her, and sent out someone else instead to inform her that my brother wouldn’t be getting the job. I hope other people have better experiences with Home Depot, but ours hasn’t been good!

  78. Not Your Typical Deli – Gilbert, Arizona
    Offers an integrated work environment for adults with Development Disabilities.

    Love hearing about large and small businesses devoted to helping to provide all individuals contribute to their community.

  79. Merrill Bausch says

    Publix Supermarkets in Florida. My daughter is 44 and has worked as a part tme bagger there for over 20 years. She has a fantastic, dedicated store manager which has helped. Love hearing about these opportunities for our adults with disabilities. Spread the word and support those businesses that support our kids. Thank you for starting this conversation!

  80. My 26 year old daughter was hired by Jewel Food in Franklin Park, IL. She has ASD and has worked there as a bagger. She enjoys it. I’ve been to other Jewel stores in Illinois and have noticed other people, such as a bagger with Downs Syndrome. A mentally challenged man was doing stock as well. I also noticed that Culver’s hires special needs people as well.


    Hey my name is Rodrigo Hernandez, I’m looking for a job for my little brother. He has been asking me where can he find a job that would hire him with his disabilitie. Short story my brother got cancer at a young age that it ended messing with his eye vision he can only see from one of his eye and a bit on his hearing. Please if you know a place that would hire him, he has been want8ng to work for the longest. Thank you

  82. Robynne Peterson says

    This is so great. I work with a employment company for people who need business’s like yours to work in. It is a fact that it is an untapped resource of incredibly hard working, loyal, talented individuals. You will enjoy discovering all their abilities.

  83. Update your list says

    Culvers should absolutely be on this long list. They overstaff as well. Food is at a premium and well worth it.

  84. I am an adult with Asperger’s and used to work as a bagger at Star Market (formally Shaw’s which is listed) and can absolutely say that they are not a company to work for if you have Asperger’s as they don’t have any understanding of it and because I don’t look like I have ‘special needs’ or Asperger’s (whatever looking like I have it means to them) I am expected to behave normally when a customer is rude and says things that are nasty and mean. Asperger’s makes me say things that may sound rude even though that’s not my intenetion but the employers here don’t care and will reprimand me (in front of other workers) but not explain what or how I was rude! Would love to find a job that understands special needs, especially Asperger’s!

  85. We are researching hiring programs for workers with autism in California. If you know of any companies developing such a program please let us know so we can give them recognition and also a shout-out for valuable workers. Thank you.

  86. There is a terrific business called Bitty and Beaus and they hire people with all sorts of challenges. They are now in three southern cities! https://www.bittyandbeauscoffee.com/

    I have a friend who has 3 adult adopted children with challenges due to alcoholic birthmoms. They live in a small town in Colorado and there were no work opportunities for their kids so they are opening their own business for their kids, Buckaroos Slices and Scoops, selling pizza and ice cream. I hope the idea catches on and they franchise one day! We need more businesses like that.

  87. Please check out Plantables (www.plantables.net) in Hudson, Wisconsin. They make a variety of amazing products that help our environment for our pollinators. The owner is a former special educator who hired several of his former students. They use lots of assistive technology and adaptive equipment (such as switches on wheelchairs to operate machinery) to manufacture their products.

  88. Yankz! In Metro Atlanta area.

  89. Anne Sheaff says

    Our two Albertsons grocery markets in Santa Maria, CA, hire people with special needs as baggers. From my experience, these employees perform commendably.

  90. No Limits Cafe in Red Bank, NJ https://www.nolimitscafe.org. A Lunch Cafe employing 33 adults with Intellectual Disabilities.

  91. Colleen Krizak says

    The Rise School and Children’s Association for Maximum Potential (C.A.M.P.) both hire adults with disabilities.

  92. Monica Staats says


    Hannaford Supermarket in New England hires people with special needs.
    My 2 year-old son has Down Syndrome and I would be thrilled if he could begin his employment career with Hannaford.

  93. The Prospector Theater employs people with disablities. I work there and it’s a great place to work!

  94. Good morning. I am a 58-year-old man with Spina Bifida and I currently work for Kroger. I can tell you for a fact that Kroger says they hire and work with people with disabilities but that is not true. My department head always discriminates against me wanting to put me on closing shifts because I am slower than my co-workers and he only wants the good and fast people on day shifts. And in my store I have constantly provided them with my medical documentation to keep and they constantly throw it all away. I can tell you for a fact that Kroger and WalMart do not care about the handicapped people. I’m sorry for being such a negative person but the truth needs to be told.
