Our Mission

The mission of Gathering Strength, Inc. is to:

Empower people with physically disabling conditions by ensuring equitable access to community resources and spaces, technology, and better health. 

Inclusive Digital Access Pilot Project

This project is made possible by a Rapid Response Grant from the Disability Inclusion Fund–a donor collaborative housed at Borealis Philanthropy.

With this pilot project GS hopes to increase inclusion, decrease isolation, and improve health and wellness of people with physically disabling conditions, who live on low incomes, especially during the Covid-19 crisis, by lowering barriers to internet access so they can participate in Gathering Strength’s (now online) health and wellness activities as well as other vital online community resources.
For information on GS’s online classes click on “Classes” in the menu above.

The project described was supported by Grant Number 90PRRC0001-01-00 from the Administration for Community Living, Department of Health and Human Services. Its contents are solely the responsibility of the Wellness Edge staff and do not necessarily represent the official views of the Administration for Community Living Or HHS
