Pride Mobility Products Corp. is proud to be an active participant in community outreach programs both locally and nationally and we were greatly honored to be awarded the 2009-2010 Outstanding Corporation by the Association of Fundraising Professionals' (AFP) Northeastern Pennsylvania Chapter.

Pride firmly believes the greatest gift a company can give to its community is to have an active role in maintaining a high quality of life for everyone who lives there.
With over 60 million people experiencing some type of disability in the United States today, disability ultimately impacts all of our lives, from our relatives to our peers to ourselves. Pride's Quantum Rehab is dedicated to supporting the success of those with disabilities in all of life's aspects. Through "Quantum Speak Out," a community outreach and disability awareness program, our goal is to help promote the importance of embracing diversity in the community at large, encouraging the success of all abilities. Provided free of charge to the community, "Quantum Speak Out" offers highly respected speakers and personalities to public and private school assemblies, colleges, civic groups, business associations and disability-related groups.
