A key element of our mission is to make our fully inclusive programming available to as many disabled people as possible. We recognize, that due to various factors, many our disabled members are living on fixed incomes. As a result, PPSC is proud to offer a limited number of annual Scholarships.
Primarily, we fund our programs through charitable grants. These grants enable us to offer Scholarships and subsequently allows us to meet our goal of providing empowerment.
