Accessibility Bridge believes that every differently-abled person deserves to live a life filled with hope and a plethora of opportunities. Our evening of awareness highlighted the value of inclusion as it relates to the success of people with disabilities across the United States. Guests enjoyed a virtual happy hour, program, and treats from talented vendors.
We recognize the excellence and amazing capabilities of people with disabilities and are also aware of their external challenges and barriers to success. We seek to serve those who want more; more opportunities for independence, more agency over their lives, more and better employment prospects that offer livable wages and equitable opportunities for advancement.
Take a few moments to look at our event recap so that you can get a behind-the scenes feel of the motivations behind the entrepreneurship of some of our successful community members.
Thank you for allowing us to continue our mission and serve more people.
Your tax-deductible donation allows us to continue to support people with disabilities and create opportunities for successful outcomes as detailed below in our event recap.
Ambition, desire, and motivation to succeed aren’t traits that are learned, they are intrinsic talents that even the most educated and affluent go without, but our clients come to us having all of those skills fearlessly intact.
Through our programs and initiatives, we will create a pipeline to success for our clients to include both internal and external resources that are crafted with their goals and skillsets in mind.

Each event box also included one of several varieties of flavored popcorn from North Coast Corn Creations (NCCC). Many students with Autism graduate from high school and society often does not understand their unique needs and abilities. Employment opportunities are often difficult to find for adults with special needs. The NCCC business was created as an opportunity to provide resources, training, and employment for lifelong learners embracing Autism.

Our guests also received a Firestarter from JT Firestarters. Each firestarter is handmade by Daniel, an adult with autism, and his caring team. Each purchase helps Daniel achieve his goal of “Taking His Own Path” towards independence. Daniel also hopes to grow the business to employ other adults with autism in the future.
