We provide resources and information to help educate the community, caregivers, and physically disabled persons that help people with physical impairments improve their quality of life at home, at work, and in the community.
We provide programs that help persons with disabilities improve their quality of life through health and wellness, education and economic empowerment. Our current programs include adaptive wellness classes, self-defense classes, financial grants, and adovocating for affordable, accessible housing.
Disability impacts all of us. 61 million adults are living with some type of impairment, ranging from mobility, cognitive, or sensory disabilities, that impact their quality of life.
One in three adults with disabilities age 18 to 44 do not have a health care provider or access to accessible wellness support. This puts them at higher risk for obesity, and other health issues such as heart disease and diabetes.
Disability is especially common among older adults, women and minorities. 1 in 4 women and 2 in 5 non-Hispanic American Indians / Alaska Natives have a disability. These segments are growing and only further increase the need to improve accessibility and care.

For many years, bicycling has not only been a form of transportation, but it has been a way of life for most including a way to get some extra cardio and exercise in. For riders with disabilities, adaptive bicycles can help them achieve their health and wellness goals.
