A World of Difference

"They really changed things and gave me a chance to succeed. I couldn't have done it without Triumph."

We like to think of all of our grant recipients as superheroes in their own right. In the case of Tyler Schrenk, it's really true.

After Tyler's C-4 spinal cord injury left him paralyzed from the neck down, assistive technology gave him control of his care, surroundings, and future. Tyler became so passionate about assistive technologies, he felt a calling to help others understand their options and use technology to improve their lives.

Tyler submitted an Employment Achievement Award request to help him take his assistive technology consulting business up a notch. Today, he's reaching more people with encouragement and insider know-how that makes a huge difference for everyone. Thanks Tyler!

October is Disability Employment Awareness Month, and his story is one of many Triumph has helped return to work and realize their vocational dreams. It's only possible because of the donations you've made this year. Thank you!
