In 2020, when Founder, Tara Cunningham, placed an autistic college graduate into a major bank with a 6-figure salary, he naturally wanted to rent an apartment nearby.
"Bob" never had a bank account, nor credit--his parents always took care of his finances. They refused to let him get an apartment.
Bob made it through university, he landed an incredible job, yet he still didn't have independent choice.
This wasn't the first time she watched the independence taken away from people with disabilities because of lack of financial inclusion, but it was the last.

Beyond-Impact is woman-owned and disability-led.
Our brand is emblematic of our mission. We want to go beyond disability inclusion "silo efforts" and instead bring universal design under the roof of corporations, small medium enterprises and mainstream banks. The impact of our diversity, equity and inclusion is the double bottom line: profit and purpose.
Our team works to improve the lives of people with disabilities (PwD) and those aging in place who are left out of mainstream services and products, costing business $millions in lost revenue, employee engagement and community trust.
