Please join GSIL on June 8 – 9 at NHGives and help us meet our goal of raising $5,000. COVID-19 has not stopped us from fighting for our mission. In fact, we have worked tirelessly to meet the needs of consumers despite the all the challenges of the pandemic. This last year, we doubled down on day-to-day consumer needs like personal care while simultaneously meeting pandemic related needs like access to technology, social isolation and food insecurity. Please support GSIL by giving what you can today. Our most pressing task for the coming year is to support GSIL consumers to emerge resiliently from all that the last 15 months has brought. Every gift makes a difference, especially today.
Supporters like you have sustained Granite State Independent Living’s work for over 40 years. With your help we can provide the transition supports consumers need to return to the new normal. Please give what you can so we can help where it is needed most.

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!
