Access & Inclusive Mission

The focus of AIM is to increase disability awareness and inclusion for those with physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual challenges; encouraging our religious and civic communities to be welcoming places for all!

“Central to our well-being is our need to belong, to have a place where we are accepted, embraced and valued for who we are. Within the Body of Christ there are no exclusionary clauses for disability or any form of judgment that says you aren’t needed or wanted here. The gift of belonging to the Body of Christ, the communion of faith, is not ours to give, it is Christ’s and Christ’s alone. Belonging is made complete when gifts are shared, accepted, and cherished. Belonging is a shared experience at the table and in the community of faith where we, as the family of God, live and work as the Body of Christ. Within that body God enables us to value and cherish one another just as we are. May we do so to the glory of God. May we seek to enable every child, teen, or adult, disabled or not, to experience and know how vital each is to the body of Christ for together–we–are the heart of faith. To God be the Glory.” *
