Fedcap is a nonprofit organization that is a leader in developing training and employment programs for people with disabilities and other significant barriers to employment in the New York City metro area. Our mission is to be a premier organization that empowers people with barriers to employment to move towards economic independence as valued members of the workforce. Individuals with severe disabilities founded Fedcap in 1935 when people with disabilities were not believed to be capable of employment or self-sufficiency. Each year Fedcap’s evaluation, training, employment, support, and advocacy programs help more than 1,600 New Yorkers overcome obstacles, rebuild their lives, and find and keep meaningful employment.
Services To Individuals
Every year, thousands of New Yorkers trade dependency for economic self-sufficiency thanks to Fedcap. Our job evaluation, training programs, support services, and the Fedcap Career Design School give individuals the skills and confidence they need to succeed at work. Graduates obtain jobs at private companies or with Fedcap. Fedcap also operates a licensed home health care agency and the Chelton Loft, a clubhouse for people with severe and persistent mental illness.
Services to Business and Government
Socially Responsible Outsourcing
Fedcap provides high-quality building/custodial, industrial, food, and office services to business and government throughout the metropolitan area. With a workforce of 550 people at over 40 locations, Fedcap is one of the largest employers of people with disabilities and other barriers to employment in the region. The majority of the jobs we are able to offer are made possible through the New York State Preferred Source Program and the federal AbilityOne Program.
