The AbleGamers Foundation is a 501(c)(3) group dedicated to bringing main stream games to people with disabilities. Please become a fan, and check out our website http://AbleGamers.com. We are disabled gamers, working for our fellow disabled gamer.
The AbleGamers Foundation serves anyone in need through direct person-to-person services, assistive technology grants, community support, and access to data. We help people afford expensive technology, which allows them the ability to participate in gaming experiences that improve their overall quality of life. Additionally, we provide the largest database of mainstream videogame titles, complete with reviews focused exclusively on the accessibility of a given title. Finally, we raise awareness by showing disabled veterans returning from war that video gaming can allow then reconnect with friends, and participate in an activity that they enjoyed before their injury.
The AbleGamers Foundation serves more than 100,000 people through our database each year, tens of thousands through our awareness programs and as many individual grants as our funding permits. We serve as the voice of more than 33 million people with disabilities that use gaming for rehabilitation, quality-of-life improvement and recreational distraction from terminal illnesses or trauma. Our staff lives with a range of disabilities; this allows us a unique connection with our members because we provide them with personal experience and knowledge of the challenges of living with a disability.
