Our team leader, Mei-Li Hey, met with Chet Cooper, founder of ABILITY Awareness, a non-profit foundation dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with disabilities by focusing in on housing, education, and employment. The Simple Seat, Better Lives team shares this same mission and looks forward to collaboration with ABILITY Corps and ABILITY Magazine in the future to enhance assistive technologies for disabled individuals around the world.
