Accord, a non-profit organization in the Twin Cities dedicated to empowering people with disabilities, announced that it has received a grant from the state of Minnesota to support its mission of helping people live their greatest lives by giving back to the community and making a difference through innovative technology. The tech grant, which was awarded through a highly competitive process, will enable Accord to expand its efforts to provide cutting-edge technology solutions that benefit individuals with disabilities that are in need.
Accord will be able to provide laptops, education, and support its ongoing programs that promote digital literacy and accessibility. The programs will provide critical support and resources to individuals with disabilities, with the goal of helping them to live more independently and achieve their full potential.
“We are incredibly grateful for the support and excited for the opportunity to use technology to make a positive impact in our communities,” said John Stanton, Accord vice president of stakeholder success. “This grant will allow us to provide laptops and other resources to the people we serve. It will make a significant difference in the lives of people with disabilities. With these new tools and resources, we can help individuals to overcome barriers to independence, access critical services and opportunities, and lead more fulfilling lives.”
Accord has a long history of advocating for the rights and needs of people with disabilities. Accord provides a wide range of services and support to individuals with disabilities and their families, including advocacy, education, day support and employment programs.
