Some background

The Need

Disabled individuals face additional costs to participate in daily life. These costs are enormous and sometimes not affordable. For example: an independently usable manual wheelchair costs over $2500. Prosthetic limbs can cost over $30,000, while a power wheelchair can easily reach $15,000.

Adaptive sports equipment is also very expensive. A hand cycle is over $2000 and adaptive ski frames start at $3500 making them an unattainable luxury to many disabled people.

Combining the added costs of daily life with punitive and outdated laws restricting assets and savings, loss of income, and/or lack of opportunity to earn a livable wage leaves many disabled people and their families in severe, long term/permanent financial distress.

The result is often the disabled person participating at a lower level, being relegated to a limited use / scheduled program or not participating at all, due to lack of financial resources.
