Why We Do It

A catalyst for Access360.org is the disability community and the related marketplace, employers and social circles. According to Disabled World, disability affects hundreds of millions of families in developing countries. Currently around 10% of the total world’s population, or roughly 650 million people, live with a disability. The Wall Street Journal reported that according to BBC Research, the market for assistive technologies in the U.S. stood at $41.1 billion in 2011. By 2016, the group estimates that value will grow to $55 billion.

Access360.org seeks to bring together individuals, organizations, and resources to facilitate access through the establishment of:

      • Cloud based information repositories that integrate databases of geocentric and business information, with the ability to both provide and access information
      • An interconnected network of information and referral systems and resource centers
      • Call centers staffed with individuals who are able to connect the user to preferred types of information
      • A premier website providing access to information in a user-friendly way for all, regardless of ability or disability
      • Mobile apps that are easy to use for all ages, abilities, and in any global location to assist the user in finding desired local or global products and resources
