ALERT: Paraquad is closed on Thursday, Nov. 23, in observance of Thanksgiving Day and Friday, Nov. 24.

Paraquad’s programs and services provide hands-on, practical assistance for people with disabilities, all geared toward the goal of independent living. Our staff works with participants to determine their needs and tailor services to help them reach their goals.

What ages do we work with?

We work with people of all ages — from children who might have a disability (or whose parent/guardian might have a disability) to senior citizens.

What types of disabilities do we focus on?

We assist people who have a wide variety of disabilities, including physical, cognitive, visual, auditory and mental/emotional. About 15 percent of our participants have multiple disabilities.

What parts of St. Louis do we serve?

We work with all St. Louisans to make our city a better place for everyone to live. We believe a more accessible city benefits us all, not just those of us with some sort of disability.
