Through our AbilityOne contracts, BAC provides employment opportunities at federal facilities like the Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Space Force Station for individuals with disabilities.
At NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and the nearby Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, nearly 140 BAC employees support the agency’s space mission every day. BAC employees at both locations provide mission critical environmental services year-round, with an amplified effort around launches and VIP events.
SourceAmerica connects government and corporate customers to a critical resource – a network of nonprofit agencies that hire people with disabilities. Job opportunities like the ones at the Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Space Force Station are provided through the AbilityOne® Program – one of the nation’s largest sources of employment for people who are blind or have significant disabilities.
“Knowing that people with disabilities are such a big part of events like NASA launching rockets from the Space Coast at Kennedy Space Center & Cape Canaveral Space Force Station really makes me feel proud of what the AbilityOne Program is,” said BAC President and CEO Amar Patel. “BAC is proud to be an integral part of the KSC NASA team especially for the historic Artemis 1 launch we saw this morning. Being part of the solution to NASA’s environmental services needs is an immense source of pride for our employees on these sites.”
NASA’s Artemis program is just the beginning of NASA’s “Moon to Mars” initiative – the agency wants to make a moon “pit-stop” that will support astronauts on longer space missions.
“They [BAC] give us the opportunity to work at probably one of the most famous places in the world, NASA,” said Keith Washington, BAC Lead Custodian at KSC. “Without them making it possible, there wouldn’t be people like me able to come out here and have a job at such a prestigious place.”
BAC is a social enterprise dedicated to building communities that support members of unique abilities in growing their personal success.
