The mission of Accessibility Bridge Corporation, a 501 (c) 3 organization, is to promote inclusion and create access for children and adults with disabilities in all areas of their communities. We provide wraparound supports to people with disabilities who are seeking higher levels of independence and inclusion in the areas of education, housing, employment, athletics, and social skills. 

The proceeds from our Evening of Disability Acceptance and Online Auction will support people with intellectual disabilities in their pursuits of post-secondary education as well as other activities and services that we provide. We appreciate all of the support that our donors and volunteers have provided to us and look forward to another year of successful partnerships.

The silent auction will go live at midnight on 10/16/23 and will close at 6 pm on 10/23/21. The event will begin on 10/23/21 at 6:00 PM EST.
