Help us support our Achilles community during this time of need.
This is a challenging time for all, especially those marginalized by our society. Achilles International serves a community of children and adults with disabilities that is at extreme risk for significant economic hardship, isolation, and negative health outcomes both mental and physical. Prior to this crisis, the unemployment rate among people with disabilities stood at 81.6% compared to 4.6% nationally. Today, that number has skyrocketed to a frightening level.
Now more than ever, Achilles needs your help.
Our population has been severely negatively impacted; the need is great, and the need is urgent. As Achilles sprints to ensure that we are doing all that we can to meet the social and health needs of those we serve, we look to you for your support.
We have set up virtual programs for children with disabilities as well as for our adult population. We are communicating on a daily basis with our athletes and chapters across the globe, making sure that we remain connected and engaged with one another.
While we are cutting expenses in every way possible in the coming months, we need your help now. We kindly ask that you join us in supporting our efforts by making a donation today.
Your support will have an immediate and significant impact on our ability to mitigate the social, economic and health risks facing this constituency.
