Disability Partnerships will be awarding two $1000 scholarships to adults with disabilities returning or entering college. The scholarship application is open from August 16th, 2023 to September 10th, 2023. The scholarship recipient must meet the requirements listed on our webpage.
If you are a senior or a person with a disability - these classes are just right for you. Participants will engage in low- to moderate-intensity workouts targeting cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, flexibility, and range of motion with instructors that have experience training persons with limited to no mobility.
FREE virtual classes are now available on Fridays and Sundays. As part of our effort to provide you with health and wellness opportunities, we are partnering with another organization, Spirit Club Foundation, to provide additional classes.
The 2022 Disability Partnerships Adaptive Grant will provide grants to persons with a physical disability. Grants are to be used for the purchase of adaptive equipment. Please complete the form below and we will email you an application.
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.
We conducted audits of local medical facilities and provided feedback to those physicians who managed those facilities. The audits were conducted by a physical therapist, a wheelchair user and/or an amputee.
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.
Our hope for IEV consists of approximately 30 fully-accessible, one-bedroom homes designed and constructed with exclusively green building materials, and funded via a combination of volunteer labor, donations, and grants.
