The Coalition is an alliance of organizations and individuals who have joined to promote the full and equal participation of men, women and children with disabilities in all aspects of life. We work together to advocate for public policy that ensures self-determination, independence, empowerment, and inclusion for people with disabilities in areas such as accessibility, education, healthcare, housing, and voting rights.

Caregivers Count!

Every day, caregivers across the country sacrifice their own financial wellbeing and professional goals to care for loved ones. This loss of pay, whether it is reducing one’s paid hours or leaving the formal workforce altogether, hurts now and in retirement. This is because our Social Security system doesn’t currently recognize the work of caregivers when calculating benefits over a lifetime of work.

As a Benefits Analyst with the Benefits to Work Program, I have the opportunity to meet Tennesseans who are receiving disability benefits while seeking employment. Every month is Disability Employment Awareness Month for us! In October, we celebrate the national spotlight on the employability of individuals with disabilities and the benefits to businesses when they hire them.
