community health inclusion (chi) initiatives

our chi initiatives create vital community energy to eliminate barriers to active lifestyles and promote health and wellness for individuals with disabilities and their families

creating accessible facilities

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