the solution

We envision a world in which young people living with a spinal cord injury and other disabilities are no longer prisoners in senior nursing homes, in their homes, or in their minds but instead are able to develop the will and the skill to embrace their new reality and to reinvent their lives.

Our mission is to create affordable, accessible supportive housing and provide transformative environments, education, and experiences for people living with a spinal cord injury or other physical disabilities. By combining apartment-style housing with personal care and services, residents will be able to live independently with dignity and privacy.

Residents will have the opportunity to acquire the survival and coping skills needed to lead independent, productive lives. Wheels of Progress will provide access to a multiplicity of services, including:

  • Adaptation Services (occupational therapy; assistive
    technology; wheelchair mobility; sexuality training, etc.)
  • Assisted Daily Living (ADL)
  • Educational Services
  • Leisure Programs
  • Physical Therapy
  • Psychiatric Support
  • Psychosocial Support
  • Social Work Services
  • Substance Abuse Programs (addictions related to pain medication)
  • Vocational Services
