A high-five may seem like a simple gesture, but as anyone who has played a sport can tell you, it means so much more. It means anything from “great job,” “we did it,” “thanks for being my teammate” or “I support you.” With this in mind, we have started a way for our fans to give Ability360 a high-five every month with a recurring donation.

The High Five Monthly Giving Group is a recurring donation club that has no minimum or maximum giving amount. Each dollar pledged helps Ability360 continue to support over 2,700 members and their health and wellness goals.

“I haven’t had many role models to look up to, so the life the I live, I want to be a role model for other people to look up to, other children to look up to, even adults.”

Denisha Davis is the role model she never had.

After sustaining a spinal cord injury from a stray bullet when she was 18, Davis now uses her platform (@_milkchocolateonwheelz) to promote kindness, share her journey and even educate others on allyship—all while putting the ‘style’ in independent lifestyle!

Her next move? More opportunities to share her unique perspective and experience with the world.

For Arizonans with disabilities, access to quality and affordable health care is not just important. It’s essential.

That’s why Ability360 strongly supports Medicare Advantage, which provides vital health care coverage to over 637,000 Arizona seniors and individuals with disabilities. Medicare Advantage benefits, including preventative care services and fitness programs, empower people and help keep them healthy and living independently. These are the same objectives we strive for at Ability360.

On behalf of Arizonans with disabilities who depend on Medicare Advantage, Ability360 urges Senator Kyrsten Sinema and Senator Mark Kelly along with Arizona’s entire congressional delegation, to continue supporting this critical program.

Best Life: Ways to keep aging loved ones safe at home

A Harvard study found the five most important universal design features in the home are no-step entries, extra-wide hallways, accessible living spaces on the ground floor and accessible light switches and door levers. But the same study found only one percent of homes in America have all five features.

'This is a broken system': Arizona disability groups want better crisis care 02/02/2022

'This is a broken system': Arizona disability groups want better crisis care

Ability360 thanks azcentral for helping shed light on the long standing issues related to the ineffective and, in many circumstances, detrimental crisis response strategies experienced by Arizonans with disabilities, particularly those with mental health issues and those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The experiences described in this report are all too familiar throughout the disability community.

Ability360 stands with the authors of this report in calling on policy makers to implement the recommendation in the report in order to swiftly and appropriately address these serious issues.

We are confident that the various state agencies and entities mentioned in the report, including Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (Arizona's Medicaid agency) and the state’s Division of Developmental Disabilities recognize these issues and will work to prioritize solutions.

'This is a broken system': Arizona disability groups want better crisis care Advocates say Arizonans with disabilities are getting shortchanged by a crisis response system that's ill-equipped to meet their needs.
