Our Mission

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), neurological disorders, ranging from epilepsy to Alzheimer’s disease, Traumatic Brain Injury to Multiple Sclerosis, affect up to one billion people worldwide. They affect people in all countries, irrespective of age, sex, education or income. More than 500 different conditions are considered neurological disorders. We have a lot of work to do.

The Plus One Foundation assists children and adults with a neurological injury, disorder, or disease to achieve goals, expand opportunities and ‘feed the soul’ through activities that offer education, rehabilitation and training. We mobilize resources to provide unique and enriching opportunities that enhance and inspire quality of life.

We fund classes, workshops and life experiences that are proven to assist individuals on their path of rehabilitation and recovery, but are rarely covered by insurance, such as; art and music therapy, therapeutic horseback riding, integrated movement therapy, martial arts, meditation, yoga, and aquatic therapies.

We want to share the life stories of Plus One clients, and supporters. We hope to build an environment online to celebrate victories together, and support and survive hardships together. Our Blog is here for you! So that you guys can connect and share what Plus One means to you! So that friendships can be formed, and connection can be made.

If you, or some one you know would like to be apart of a featured blog post, please contact us at connect@plusonefoundation.org
