National Ability Center
The National Ability Center (NAC) empowers individuals of all abilities by building self-esteem, confidence, and lifetime skills through sport, recreation, and social & educational programming. NAC’s vision is to inspire individual achievement, community inclusion, and global impact for persons of all abilities, including active-duty service members, veterans, and their families. Project SERVE: Sports, Education, & Recreation for Veteran Empowerment (SERVE) provides a broad spectrum of adaptive sport activities that serve veterans, disabled members of the Armed Forces and their families, as well as Gold Star Families who are living with physical, cognitive, and mental health disabilities. Along with the benefits of being outdoors and physically active, this BWF grant will help NAC bring veterans, service members, and their families together to build a sense of community that helps decrease the feelings of social isolation.
