Mission Statement

The mission of The Accessibility Bridge Corporation is to encourage and empower differently-abled people to mobilize and integrate into a larger society by connecting them with resources and communities that have proven to be invested and successful in their inclusion efforts. The work of the Accessibility Bridge Corporation centers around our vision, which is that differently-abled people have connections and resources needed to optimize success and broaden their pursuits to happiness. We focus on inclusion and equity for people with disabilities as it relates to community development, education, healthcare, athletics, social systems, employment, and accessibility. We partner with and support inclusive businesses throughout the U.S. who support, employ, train or provide information & resources to people with disabilities.

Description

Dee Sapp, founder and Executive Director of Accessibility Bridge has a son with an intellectual impairment and autism. There were many obstacles and barriers created by people, systems & programs that lacked both the empathy and knowledge it took to instruct and interact with a person with different abilities. The "one size fits all" approach to services and assistance proved more of a detriment than as support.

Believing that her son deserved equitable opportunities for an independent and successful life, she sought meaningful & accommodating ways for him to thrive. Researching programs, schools, employers, and therapists she learned that there's a world of inclusive communities that her son could tap into if she was willing to let him leave the "comfort" of his current community in order to experience it. Therefore, Accessibility Bridge Corporation was formed.

Disability has moved from a physical or medical perspective to one that incorporates a person’s physical, social, & intellectual background. Strides are being made to make the world more accessible for people with disabilities; but, more work is required to meet their needs.

We address areas of inclusion & equity for PWD relating to community development, education, healthcare, athletics, social systems, employment, and accessibility. Our signature programs operate nationally: Crossing Bridges, Mentoring, Brick 44 Athletic Initiative, and Educational Equity. We have other community-based programs such as our Winter’s Closet and Food Pantry.
