ADA’s mission was to provide disabled children with customized equipment and furniture for their special needs so they can learn and participate equally side by side with all children. Grant for general operating funds.

ADA moved into its own factory storefront in 2006 and is now helping children and adults alike. Equipment/furniture is made of 3 layers of corrugated cardboard, which is inexpensive and can be endlessly adapted to each individual’s unique needs.
