According to the US National Library of Medicine, having friendships and interpersonal social connections not only enhances an individual’s well-being but is also a normal and expected necessity of life. However, a large number of people with disabilities are socially excluded and are now out of the mainstream society. We all desire and deserve to have meaningful friendships and relationships where we feel loved and appreciated. This need is felt by people with disabilities also.
Accessibility Bridge sends "We Care" Packages to registered clients with the goal of supporting their current endeavors and letting them know that there are people in the world who thinks of them, wants them to continue to push forward, and thinks that they are amazing!
The idea that someone sent something personalized usually puts a sparkle in the eye and a wide smile across one's face. It's this realization that someone cares...We Care!
Our We Care Packages help make and strengthen human connections which is essential in the growth of a person with a disability.
Boxes are themed and the contents vary based upon availability. Each box will come with a card or note of encouragement and support.

Crossing Bridges Awards
Every day, people with disabilities are making progress in their journey to lead valuable and meaningful lives. We, at the Accessibility Bridge Corporation, want to ensure they are supported in their efforts by showing that we appreciate and value their contributions and achievements . To recognize the efforts of people with disabilities, Accessibility Bridge Corporation celebrates deserving individuals by recognizing them through our Crossing Bridges awards.
Do you know a differently-abled individual who has recently achieved a milestone or a goal that they have diligently been working on? Maybe they have defied the odds with bravery and strength, landed their first job, got an amazing internship, rented their own apartment, or got accepted into a trade school; we want to celebrate it all! Bridges come in different sizes and it’s not the size of the bridge that matters, it’s the fact that a bridge has been crossed and they are on their way to better things.
We keep the nomination process relatively simple by initially asking for their name, what achievement was made and why you think they deserve recognition. Should your nominee be selected, you will be contacted for the mailing information of your nominee.
Nominations are ongoing and you may nominate multiple people. A selection committee from our nonprofit will decide which nominees will receive an acknowledgement and awards are given yearly at our annual Evening of Disability Acceptance Event.
