Social Value: The national average unemployment rate is 7.2%. For people with disabilities, the rate is 25% to 50% (varies depending on how you measure). With an unemployment rate 3x to 7x higher than the national average, it’s evident that people with disabilities can struggle to find work. At Good Foot, we’re looking to change that. Over the past 5 years, we have grown into a flourishing, not for profit courier organization with nearly 30 staff living with developmental disabilities. For our staff, Good Foot provides an opportunity for financial independence, self-direction, and responsibility, as well as a community to which they are integral contributors. A 2014 University of Toronto report on our operations shows that for every $1 that goes into Good Foot, there is $2.36 of Social Return on Investment.
