Goodwill’s AbilityOne program provides part-time job opportunities for individuals with severe disabilities. All AbilityOne positions help employees build skills both independently and in team settings. All positions provide accommodations to help ensure long-term employment, and AbilityOne employees work with Goodwill Omaha’s team to ensure successful, long-term job placements.
AbilityOne jobs include custodial and postal services for our federal government partners: the Zorinsky Federal Building in Omaha; the Denney Federal Building in Lincoln; U.S. Strategic Command in Bellevue; and Offutt Air Force Base.
AbilityOne participants are paid according to the federal wage determination, which starts at more than $11 an hour. In 2020, we employed 113 people in the program, and 92 identified as having a disability.
