  • Mission:
  • BDI Mission: Empowering people with disabilities and disadvantages to maximize their potential by securing economic self-sufficiency, independence and integration into society.

  • History:
  • Since it was founded as a program of the Atlanta Alliance on Developmental Disabilities (then Retarded Citizens - Atlanta) in 1960, BDI has developed from its origins as a sheltered workshop into a full-service, multi-faceted institute providing vocational assessments and rehabilitation, job training, career counseling, permanent employment, and enrichment. BDI offers work adjustment training as well as specialized job training in a range of industries, including janitorial services, administrative services and call centers, food service, and packaging and fulfillment. BDI celebrated the 20th anniversary of its incorporation as an independent nonprofit in 2009. BDI purchased its headquarters and training facility in 2000. Since that time, BDI has more than quadrupled the number of people served annually and tripled the number of jobs it provides. BDI holds the highest level of accreditation by CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) and has received numerous accolades, including the Valuing Diversity Award from the United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta, the prestigious Managing for Excellence Award from The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, and NISH’s Excellence in Government Contracting for 2011.
