Partnerships With Industry is a San Diego-based nonprofit bringing together employers and persons with developmental and other disabilities in win-win partnerships. We work with over 200 local businesses to provide employment opportunities for adults with disabilities.Our history began in 1985, when Partnerships With Industry (PWI) was one of the first organizations in California to offer its clients the choice of “supported employment” opportunities out in the community. This program was developed to help individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities become self-sufficient and self-confident members of the San Diego County community. By the end of the first decade serving North County San Diego, we had expanded our services and served over 300 persons. This decade saw the formation of Group Services with organizations such as the Army and Navy Academy and the City of Vista. They are still business partners to this day!
