Make an Impact

With support from donors like you and your friends and family, Kessler Foundation conducts groundbreaking rehabilitation research and funds innovative employment initiatives to help people with disabilities return to their homes, their communities, and the workplace.

When you become a champion for people with disabilities, the impact is profound. People with paralysis stand and walk for the first time. Stroke survivors drive again. People with multiple sclerosis and traumatic brain injury improve their ability to learn and remember. Young adults with autism improve awareness of their personal strengths and their ability to self-advocate. Jobseekers with disabilities find satisfying employment and become self-sufficient.
