While searching for resources, I found The Ability Experience. Have you heard about them? They were formerly Push America. The group is a nonprofit that supports people with disabilities while giving back to the community. Their work helps to improve the lives of others.
The Ability Experience is a fraternity that has chapters across the world. The program is teaching its members and the public about the abilities of people with disabilities.
The group is serving, supporting, and building future leaders. Their vision, “Create a community, one relationship at a time, where the abilities of all people are recognized and valued,” remains unchanged. The group believes in the abilities of all, teamwork, empathy, and integrity while helping others.
The Ability Experience works to help people with disabilities in need. They know that sharing the talents of people with disabilities benefits everyone and that all people have abilities!
There is most likely already a chapter in your area. If not, the organization is ready to form a chapter where one is needed. Events are held each year in communities to raise funds and bring awareness to the people they serve.
One of their programs builds wheelchair ramps for families that otherwise couldn’t afford them. People can also apply for funding to help with new equipment or upgrades to their facilities or homes. If you are in need of a ramp or know someone who does, they will gladly get local members together to build one.
If you would like to know more about this program and the services that they provide, email Mr. E. Kievszkowski or call 980-318-5382. Be sure to check out our page on Find Services, Groups and Events for more resources!
