LiveAbility is a 501c-3 non-profit organization dedicated to advocacy, training, peer support, information, referrals, and transition services geared toward empowering WV residents who live with disabilities through access. As such, much of our funding comes from the following grants and programs.

PATHS, the Partnerships in Assistive Technologies

PATHS, the Partnerships in Assistive Technologies, is a nonprofit group dedicated to increasing awareness about and access to assistive technology (AT). PATHS was incorporated in 1996 and is recognized by the IRS as a tax-exempt, 501 (c)(3) corporation. PATHS is a licensed business and registered as a nonprofit organization with the State of West Virginia.

West Virginia Olmstead Transition and Diversion Program

The intent of the Olmstead Transition & Diversion Program is to assist people with disabilities who reside in facility settings to return to or for those who are at risk of facility placement to remain in their home and community. The funding for this Program is very limited and can support approximately 50‐70 people per year. Due to the limited funding available, it is critical to allocate funding to those wishing to return home and those at imminent risk of facility placement.

Our Mission

LiveAbility will encourage and assist West Virginians living with disabilities to be in control of their own destinies and day-to-day decisions. They will be in control of what is done on their behalf to take a more active role in their own independence to the greatest degree possible for their unique situations.
