After a recent spinal cord injury resulted in paraplegia, Kevin’s life soon changed. The staﬀ at GSIL worked closely with him through his rehabilitation, oﬀering resources, peer support and mentoring as well as assisting him in networking with his community to set goals. Kevin obtained 2 accessible vehicles, had his own apartment and sat on several diﬀerent disability related committees. He participated in barrier.
free recreation and peer support groups. With some guidance from GSIL staﬀ, Kevin obtained a hand cycle through Challenge Athletes Foundation. In the fall of 2019, he did the research to find an accessible subsidized apartment. He spoke with his employer about a transfer in jobs to the franchise in the city to which he was moving. He now had a job waiting for him as well!
