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. We use a social entrepreneurship approach to draw upon business techniques and find innovative solutions to the barriers associated with physical disability. Most importantly, social entrepreneurship will help address the issue of how societies and individual communities treat one of their most vulnerable populations, individuals with disabilities and the consequences to that society of that treatment. Founded in 2015, Disability Partnerships utilizes a partnership model to collaborate across various partner sectors and achieve goals in three specific program areas: education, physical health and wellness and economic empowerment. 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 that work together to achieve that goal.
