We are in the process of making everything about our networks more ABLED!

From switching hosting platforms, to upgrading our CMS, to upgrading security and updating our content, we’re busy with improving the overall accessibility, functionality and user experience for you.

That means that most of our links will be disabled throughout this process, and we apologize in advance for the inconvenience. But it will be worth the wait!

In the meantime, the links in our navigation bar will remain active, and we’ll keep you posted about our progress.

Our mission is to provide an informational experience that gives everyone a chance live a more Abled® life by making better informed choices throughout life, and is accessible to everyone whether or not you’re living with a health, physical or sensory condition.

We’re also looking to partner with advertisers, marketers and investors in this phase of scaling-up our global presence, so feel free to contact us at [email protected]

We look forward to flipping all kinds of switches to give you a new and improved experience and thank you for your patience in the meantime.

The Abled Team


We’re expanding our content categories and upgrading the way we bring them to you for greater efficiency and ease of use.

Our Abled.ALERT Networks also contain information on how to assist persons with a health, physical or sensory condition during emergencies or evacuations.

Abled.Alert Networks: Banner shows 7 categories: Emergency with a photo of emergency vehicles responding to a scene at night; Missing- showing a photo of the Amber Alert logo over a photo negative image of a girl with long hair; Outbreak- with a photo showing hooded lab technicians; Recall-with a photo of bacteria framed by a photo of ground beef; Threat - with a photo of a Command Center; Weather- with a satellite photo of a hurricane; and ALERT360 with a prototype of the app shown on an iPhone.


We’re constructing new content delivery formats that provide a quick and enjoyable way to inform yourself about what’s going on in the world around you, while also providing relevant options to expand that knowledge with integrated content, products and services.

Our Abled.News Networks curate unbiased information that will enhance your decision-making to enable you to live a more Abled.Life whether living with a health, physical or sensory condition or not.

Abled.News Networks banner shows 7 categories: Health with photo of woman stretching at the beach; AbledIssues showing a stack of colored pencils below the phrase No Bullying; AbledLife with a photo of a woman leaping across the grass trailing a green fabric that is the same color as the Abled logo icon; AbledMoney with a photo of the AbledMoney app on a smartphone; AbledPeople with a photo of two people giving each other a high-five at the top of a moountain peak; AbledSports with a photo of a young man in a racing wheelchair; and AbledTech with a photo of a woman dressed in a silver mylar bodysuit and wearing AI goggles.


In the same way we consolidate and curate information throughout our Abled.ALERT and Abled.News networks, we’re building our new platform to do the same in major cities around the world so that you can find community, content, products and services that are relevant to you in a quick, convenient and equally accessible way.

If you are an advertiser, marketer or entrepreneur and wish to list your accessible enterprise, or if you’re interested in being an affiliated partner in your city, drop us a line at [email protected] and we’ll be happy to discuss what we can build together! 

Abled.Cities banner shows an illustration of iconic landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben and so on placed on a curved globe.


While we work behind the scenes to construct our new formats, you’re welcome to view a sampling of some of the topics of our previous reports to give you an idea of the diverse range of coverage and how we look to find helpful content that you can take away from them.

Unfortunately the links are not active as we’re “re-patriating” space for the new content – but the headline modules will give you a good sense of what we try to provide.

If you’re a potential sponsor, affiliate partner or investor and would like to sample some of the new formatting, send an email to [email protected] stating your reasons for wanting access and we’ll send you a link and a password for access. Your email must come from a registered entity, and not from generic email addresses from gmail, hotmail and others.
