In October 2012 I was fired from my job of 19 years as Public Notice Coordinator with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. They fired me for being both disabled and a whistle-blower under the guise of ludicrous charges of misconduct. I am fighting to get my job back. I have a case pending before the Missouri Administrative Hearing Commission, Case # 12-2263 PER. On 10/08/2013 I filed a separate ADA discrimination/whistle-blower complaint in Cole County Circuit Court, Case # 13AC-CC00592.

NAIDW has a "FundMe" app which is helping me fund my effort to get my job back.

Hire professionals to develop policies and position papers to improve the lives of injured and disabled workers. They do good on the personal. They need to develop the political as well.

I was injuried in a work-related accident in 2007. I had been a professional person who thrived in a high-pressure job. My brain is still telling my body to do all the active things it used to do, but my body is not able to do most of it anymore, as I am 100% totally disabled. For years I have been made to feel that all of this is my fault. When I found this group, I no longer felt so alone. I want to be more actively involved, but my disability is getting in the way. This group and their website has tons of good information that is updated on a daily basis. It allows for open conversations between it's members. This group cares about it's members. If they don't know the answer to a question, they will find it for you or find where/who you need to contact to get your question answered. If there were more groups like this, there would be fewer stresssed out patients.

As a volunteer, I have the opportunity to see and be part of a foundation with amazing vision. NAIDW offers a plethora of support, guidance and information for injured and disabled workers. This foundations holds true to its mission and that is to offer support when there is no where else to turn. I am proud to volunteer and lend a hand to something that is so needed.

I had the pleasure of speaking with the director of NAIDW on a few different occasions. He is a kind and caring person who started this organization for the benefit of others who have been injured, disabled, etc.

NAIDW is a growing nonprofit that is there to service those who are in
the same rough situations I have been in. through my illness. The problem with other sites is that the information and resources for people off work due to an injury or disability isnt easy to find. With the services and information provided by NAIDW, it makes resources and support easy to find, all in one great social site.

The Great!

Ive experienced this organizations kind and caring manner. Most everyone I have encountered during my time on the site have been good listeners, and have shared experiences. People at NAIDW are HELPFUL, and SUPPORTIVE. Its always good to know there are others who have " Been there".

HELP IT GROW! NAIDW needs Volunteers and Sponsors.

I am an injured and now disabled worker. I rolled an 18 wheeler and damage discs in my neck and back, now suffer with Chronic pain, sciatica, lower back pain, chronic pain in neck, and pain down both my left arm and leg.

Being on this site lets me know that i am not alone in what i am
going through. Everyone has a helpful hint at getting you through the tough times. To let you know what you should do and what you should have your dr's do for you to help you.

There is not a lot that i can say that is bad with this site, except i know there are ways that this site needs help monetarily wise. I would love to see this site become the only site that Injured and Disabled workers would come.

I like the fact that they want this to be run by the Injured and Disabled workers. That way they all have the passion to put their hearts into it.

The Great!

I have personally experienced a feeling of not being alone in what i am going through. Without this site, the people who run it, and the members that enjoy it, i would have felt even more alone, and even more depressed.

Do a little work on the chat pages. They should fit within the screen without having to scroll up to see peoples names. Second, I have found with the drop boxes when you put your cursor over the items in the list, parts of the second box that shows the subtitles to the main title have a letter to 3 letters missing in the front of the subtitle.

NAIDW is a great foundation for injured and disabled workers. It has made tremendous leaps and bounds from when the organization first began. Over the past year, NAIDW has worked nonstop on increasing the organization's resources and spreading the word of their cause. The organization is open to all injured workers and has very useful information to benefit those that need it's help. I strongly recommend NAIDW to anyone dealing with a difficult situation of its nature. NAIDW's members and staff give their heart and soul into making the foundation the best it can be.

The Great!

The time that I spend volunteering for NAIDW is the best part of my week. I always look forward to working with other volunteers and the enthusiastic staff, and I especially appreciate the dedication the organization shows on a daily basis to improving the quality of life of injured & disabled workers by providing unlimited resources, support, guidance and grant-based financial aid to injured & disabled workers and their families. Discovering NAIDW has been a very rewarding experience for me and I look forward in the future to assisting and helping in any way I can.
