Access-Ability Helps With Senior Projects

Andrew Jones's senior project was choosen as one of the top extraordinary projects that benefit the community.  Andrew helped raise $5,000 selling ornaments for our agency in 2013.

Here he is with his buddies testing Access-Ability's power chairs, learning of the difficulties of the handicapped.

Thanks Andrew for a wonderful job. Students interested, call Cindy at: 812- 314-2899 or access-ability.nonprofit@yahoo.com

Dear Volunteers and Supporters,

 

l feel so privileged to work with all the great people associated with Access-Ability.

 

Because of the contributions from each of you, Access-Ability is able to provide much

neededassistance to our neighbors with disabilities and various health challenges

across Indiana counties served.  Regardless of your job responsibilities, you can and

should be proud of your contribution to this valuable service.

 

I can't emphasize enough the importance of everyone's role in the Access-Ability mission.

Whether you work in client services, administration or maintenance, the mission could

not be done as efficiently without your contribution. 

 

Since many of you have few opportunities for interaction outside your own area of work,

it may be  easy to forget how your individual role fits in with others' work.  Let me assure you

that whatever you do is an integral part of Access-Ability services. 

 

We can be proud of the level of excellence reached by Access-Ability.  The service

provided by Access-Ability reaches new levels every day. Each level up the ladder requires

us individually and collectively to strive for even greater performance as we continue to improve in everything we do. 

 

It has been more than 52 years since Access-Ability (Formerly Easter Seals) started as a Non-profit agency. 

 

The first 40 years were as an all volunteer support group.  While often  we were able to help one another through advocacy and referral, far too often the needed equipment was not available to working people.  There was an obvious need for assistance for people who earned too much to qualify for traditional assistance, but did not earn enough to afford the disability and health related equipment they needed.   

 

Still, I am certain of this much:  you are with Access-Ability today and your contribution is invaluable.

 

Thank you so much for everything you do.

 

Cynthia Olson
