to Our Site

Our unique mission serves people around the world who are living without both arms or all four limbs. Throughout the past decades, we have built bridges between people living without arms, their families, caregivers, and clinicians.


Our flagship event is our Skills for Life: Bilateral Upper Limb Loss Workshop, complemented by regular connections through webinars, support groups, and resources of many kinds.

“The people we serve face complex challenges with dignity and humor, reaching out to others to share insights and care,” says Shawn Johnson, OTR and Executive Director. “This work is powerful and meaningful, touching lives in lasting ways.”

We look forward to getting to know you and all that you bring to this community.
