Governor's Office on Disability - Mission Statement (2008)


The Governor’s Office on Disability (GOOD) was created by Executive Order Number 43 in 1999 (re-established with Governor Bentley’s Executive Order 15 in 2011). It was formed to serve as a statewide clearing house for information on disability and resources in Alabama. Its other major function is to act as a liaison to the Governor’s Office on disability issues. GOOD’s mission statement was revised in 2008 to include “facilitate the inclusion of Alabamians with disabilities in education, employment, housing, transportation, health care, and leisure.” The mission statement does not specifically mention employment. GOOD has two “annual reports” (covering two years each) available, but these do not specifically mention Employment First concepts either.
