Combating Social Isolation Through Play
Creating opportunities that enable play in order to combat social isolation, foster inclusive communities, and improve the quality of life for people with disabilities.
People with disabilities are 51% more likely to be socially isolated than their non-disabled peers.
You want people with disabilities to have rich well rounded lives that let them be their best selves and to have something to look forward to. Your support works every day to bring play to those desperately needing it, and we do it at no cost to the people we serve.
Why is your support important?
The mission is always about using video games to enable social experiences for people with disabilities. Please watch how your support changes people’s lives.
Play is a powerful weapon against the epidemic of social isolation. Play, specifically via gaming, gives people an accessible way to reach beyond the physical confines of their homes, connect with other players all over the world.
The world of games and gaming provides people with disabilities an opportunity to build rich social engagements, lifelong friendships, and connect with players who share similar experiences. Simply put, AbleGamers believes in using the power of play and inclusion to connect players, build communities and combat social isolation.
