The AbilityOne Program uses the purchasing power of the federal government to buy products and services from participating, community-based non-profits agencies, such as Peckham, who are dedicated to training and employing individuals who are blind or have significant disabilities. The program is administered by the U.S AbilityOne Commission, with assistance from National Industries for the Blind (NIB), SourceAmerica, and American Foundation for the Blind (AFB).
