Happy Shopping
If you're shopping for the farmer in your family, consider assistive technology as an option! The following articles provide suggestions to assist with common challenges.
AgriStress Helpline Resource
AgrAbility not only promotes the physical health of our farmers, but also mental health. AgriStress helpline assists farmers and farm families 24/7 seeking mental health support in Virginia, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Wyoming and Texas. Mental health professionals answer calls and texts and have been specifically trained to understand agriculture, forestry and fishing workers. Please share this resource with anyone who may benefit. To find out more, visit the AgriSafe webpage.
End of Year Giving
Although 2022 is coming to an end, AgrAbility's work is not! As you plan your end-of-year giving, please consider donating to the AgrAbility Assistive Technology Fund.

Many of the farmers we work with are in need of assistance to purchase necessary tools. Therefore, a special fund has been setup to appropriate funds to those in need of assistance. Your gift can provide tools that allow farmers to continue doing the work they love. Donate HERE
