Wheels of Defense

Research shows that as a result of their physical vulnerabilities, women with disabilities endure higher rates of abuse and sexual assault than able-bodied women, and are often subject to unwanted touching and verbal harassment. “Wheels of Defense” is an innovative program idea designed to strengthen the safety of women who use a wheelchair for mobility.

Affordable Accessible Housing

Unfortunately, people with physical disabilities face multiple barriers to adequate housing. Without a fully accessible home, a person with limited mobility may be unable to access essential rooms or leave the home without assistance from others.
