What We Do
We enable people with disabilities to achieve a greater quality-of-life through the power of video games. Our Grant Program purchases expensive assistive technology for gamers with disabilities when families can’t afford it and insurance companies refuse to help. Our Accessibility Arcades showcase demonstrations of cutting-edge AT in libraries and universities across the country where individuals with disabilities can try each device for themselves to help find the right combination of technology for their individualized needs without going through an expensive, and often expensive trial and error process. Our practical set of game accessibility guidelines called Includification have been vetted as the best resources for game developers to create accessible environments open to people of all abilities without the need for technology. Our efforts reach far and wide with many more programs all aimed at giving individuals with disabilities the greatest experience anyone can ask for in a video game.
Why We Do What We Do
Imagine being locked out of your favorite activity. Unable to join your friends and family. Presented with insurmountable obstacles as simple as the inability to push a button on a controller. The AbleGamers Charity believes that there should be no barriers to fun. Our goal, when you strip away all the fancy press talk, the extensive marketing material, fancy bells and whistles, is very, very simple. In a world where doing simple things can feel impossible, the ability to run, jump, and soar is the greatest gift anyone can be given. The smiles that come next… Well, that's why. Everyone needs a little help sometimes.
