Disability Partnerships is a community-based 501c3 non-profit organization that seeks to provide support with the social, health and economic issues that are often faced by persons living with paralysis and/or a physical disability. Founded in 2015, Disability Partnerships collaborates across various partner sectors (business, nonprofit, government and education) to achieve goals in three specific program areas: economic empowerment, education and physical health and wellness. We set a broad goal for each of the program areas and then build an ecosystem of non-profit organizations, government agencies, businesses and faith-based institutions to achieve each goal.
We use a partner engagement model to provide solutions to the social problems associated with physical disability. Those social problems are a result of physical barriers, attitudinal barriers, organizational and economic barriers.
