WallBusters Advocate for Systems Change to remove barriers to Independence for People with Disabilities.

Our mission is to educate and advocate for the removal of barriers to independence for people with disabilities Education is important because a person without a disability may not understand what barriers exist and how those barriers may prevent some people from living independent and successful lives. We also advocate for the rights of people with a disability because it is our social responsibility to ensure that a person with a disability is able to access the same social benefits as any other member of our community.

The Chena Tool Library enhances self sufficiency, community resiliency and neighborly relations by supporting DIY endeavors through sharing tools, knowledge and skills.

Fairbanks is a community of do-it-yourselfers, from homebuilding to car repair to chicken raising. However, not everyone can afford all the tools needed for these endeavors, nor does everyone have the space to store them or even the desire to own them for infrequent or one-time use.
