At AMAC we're a mission-driven team constantly looking for new ways to knock down barriers to accessibility. Programs like Tools for Life, AccessText, STEPP and PROFITT that began as inspired initiatives are now established, trusted programs serving the accessibility needs of many thousands of individuals across the United States.
Tools for Life, Georgia's Assistive Technology Act Program, operates under AMAC. Tools for Life offers more options for greater freedom by increasing access to and acquisition of assistive technology (AT) devices and services for Georgians of all ages and disabilities so they can live, learn, work, and play independently in communities of their choice.Visit the Tools for Life website
