How Your Support Makes a Difference

  • REMOVING BARRIERS (Access, Equality, and Social Justice) – From eliminating physical barriers to changing attitudes, your support creates a more inclusive society that protects, preserves, and promotes civil rights and equal opportunities for people of all abilities.
  • STRENGTHENING SKILLS (Fostering Growth and Independence) – From teaching coping mechanisms to helping people gain essential job skills needed for employment, your support helps empower people with disabilities so they can lead a life of inclusion, participation, and independence.
  • SUSTAINING NEEDS (Building Safety Nets in the Community) – From helping families move out of crisis situations to transitioning people out of nursing homes, your support provides security, safety, and hope to people with disabilities.
  • ENRICHING LIVES (Providing Recreation, Art, and Adventure) – From inclusive summer camps and therapeutic horseback riding to our adaptive ski program and social groups, your support provides people with disabilities access to year-round recreation, art, and adventure.
