Our Weekend in Cincinnati

A player with disabilities playing an arcade machine.

With your backing and our amazing partners in Cincinnati, The Powered by AbleGamers Program has supported Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, University of Cincinnati Health, and nonprofits like The Bridge to ensure that accessible gaming can be a part of all the fun going on in the southwestern Ohio area. AbleGamers provided training for the hospitals in the area and directly supports local players to empower the community events that bring gamers together.

Last year our Powered By AbleGamers program granted over $10,500 worth of accessible technology, enabling hundreds of hours of play with the many disabled gamers in Cincinnati and the surrounding areas.

Our Powered By AbleGamers program provides the equipment and training to the hospitals and facilities we support. Still, we also work directly with the players one-on-one, providing a multi-organization approach to ensure a player has the best possible gaming experiences for years to come.

Community and Peer Counseling team members visited Cincinnati for a Powered by AbleGamers game night filled with accessible controllers in a massive arcade filled with great games and pizza provided by our friends and partners at Velocity Esports.

By partnering with Velocity Esports, we could utilize their awesome gaming lounge, enabling us to set up the accessible technology needed to play Overwatch, Animal Crossing, NBA 2k, and Rocket League.

Your support made this smile possible.

AbleGamers Peer Councilors and all of our Powered by AbleGamers Partners work one-on-one with each and every person. This is not a one-size-fits-all solution, but a tailored experience to enable joy in someone’s life. Donate today to help us continue enabling play for people with disabilities.
