Peaces of Me Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating the stigma associated with disability and chronic illness. By connecting people to resources, information, and community support, we empower people to elevate their quality of life and reach their full potential. Our innovative approach utilizes tools and techniques from a variety of sectors in an effort to disrupt the disability rights sphere. In doing so, we are changing expectations regarding what is possible.
Our co-founders, Daniel & Kristy, have a personal stake in this cause. We are cognizant of the struggles that many of us face in our daily lives, and confident that the road gets smoother as we take this journey together. True compassion is meeting someone where they are, and assisting them in getting where they want to go.
What makes us unique:
We are an intersectional group comprised of disabled and disability allied people, with a strong empowerment centric philosophy. We believe that access can no longer be a request, but it must be a mandate; and not a second thought, but built in. People who are disabled cannot fight for a piece of the pie, it must grow the pie large enough so all people with disabilities are included. Nothing about us without us, but always from society’s intersections. These strengths are the very underpinnings of our mission to provide resources and connections.

Assisting individuals with disabilities should not come at the cost of diminished autonomy. We offer authentic support as a source of empowerment that enhances dignity and self-direction. When this is achieved, our ability to participate in society and contribute to our full capacity is magnified and the positive ramifications are far-reaching. Each of us benefits when everyone is substantively included.
If this bold vision speaks to you, please contribute what you can. Your support will help us create a more equitable world, that will impact countless lives. Together, we can do this!
