The Mainstream, Inc., is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving competitive employment opportunities for persons with disabilities. Established in 1975, Mainstream was founded by Harold E. Krents, a graduate of Harvard Law School. Frustrated that his credentials and talents were deemed useless in a business environment that judged him by his disability (blindness), he decided to change this for himself and all persons with disabilities by establishing Mainstream. The organization provides specialized services and acts as a bridge that links service providers, employers, and persons with disabilities. To achieve its goals, Mainstream provides its constituents with training, educational publications, and videos on disability employment issues.
