Description

Do you want a fulfilling and inspiring opportunity with a new non profit?

The Disability Partnership Project was officially founded in fall 2015. It is a 501c3 community-based 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 solutions to the social problem of physical disability.

This is approximately 1.9% of the U.S. population, or some 5,596,000 people, who report some form of paralysis or physical disability based on its functional definition. Chronic paralysisof all forms, not just traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI), is a long-term health, economic, and social issue worldwide (National Spinal Cord Injury Database, 2001; Dijkers et al., 2000).
