a revolution in inclusion

creating accessible facilities

We train business and municipalities to operate inclusively from front end to back end whenever their doors are open...a model of true inclusion for our community!

 

providing adaptive equipment

Having access to adaptive equipment along with standard equipment options is a critical link to individuals with disabilities and their families being able to participate together in recreation and sports

 

training in disability culture

Business operators must understand disability, disability culture, and best practices in engaging and sustaining relationships with individuals with disabilities

 

making our community more fun

"Since my injury, nearly ten years ago, I felt lost during the summer months. Now, I have kayaking. It is something new, a sport, skills to improve, and motivation to get in shape in order to be efficient.  This program has changed how I view the summer and provided me with a place of belonging. The APACC has introduced me to something that I now love. Thank you, RAA, for your dedication and passion for inclusion."
Nicole N., Community member

"Follow-up to one of the best days of my life, post-stroke:  I had such a great time [at the APACC OPening] Sunday.  I had resigned myself to a lifetime of sitting on the dock, watching my family on the water, and now I see that I'll be able to participate just like before!"
J.M., Community Member, Stroke Survivor, Pursuing an active lifestyle with family
