With your help, Paraquad provides its expert services for people with disabilities at low or no cost to ensure that everyone who needs help can get it.
- Making a home more accessible for a person with a disability can be challenging, particularly for people with limited personal resources. The average cost of a ramp, for example, is about $4,000. A gift to our Home Modifications fund can help make a home safer and more accessible for someone with a disability.
- Many people with disabilities are seeking employment, which can be instrumental in supporting sustainable independence. For a person with a disability who is new to employment, some guidance might be beneficial. For $250, Paraquad can provide two hours of on-the-job support for a newly employed person with a disability.
- Health and wellness matters for everyone, including people with disabilities and people with limited incomes. For $50, one person with limited income can access the adapted fitness center, group exercise classes, and education programs in Paraquad’s Health and Wellness Center for one month.
- People with disabilities who transition from homelessness or institutions to their own apartment need essential household goods. A gift of $25 can provide a housewarming basket of plates and silverware.
With more than 80 percent of our participants living on incomes of less than $20,000, Paraquad relies on the generosity of our supporters to fund core services. Your gift can help to ensure accessibility to services that promote independence for people with disabilities.
