Assistive Technology: Education
We are a group of professionals and volunteers, and almost all of us have disabilities ourselves. We are passionate about supporting and empowering other people with disabilities to lead meaningful, independent lives and to actively participate in their communities. We are not a training center.
For many people with physical and developmental disabilities, the challenges faced each day are enormous. With vision, hearing, motor or cognitive limitations, many live in isolation.
Our mission is to bring people with disabilities and the elderly complete access to new and pre-owned adaptive equipment, services, resources, and events throughout the nation.
